Instant Verification

By using the Instant Verification function, you will be able to view a Certificant's certification data.  You may search using the first, last name, and/or certification number of the Certificant. Please note that the certificate number is case sensitive. If a certification number contains letters, use capital letters "CNM" or "CM", not "cnm" or "cm". 
Clicking "Reset" will load the entire directory, which may take some time.

If you are already signed in, click "My Account" in the top right-hand corner, then click "Purchase Verification Letters" on your portal homepage.
AMCB Certification Statuses and Meaning
  • Active: Currently certified as a Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM) or Certified Midwife (CM). The title “CNM” or “CM” is used to represent midwives who are maintaining their certification by meeting continuing maintenance program requirements.
  • Retired: AMCB certified midwife who has permanently retired from practice in good standing. ‘Practice’ is defined as any roles that require CNM/CM certification for the position. With a retired certification, the title “CNM (ret.)” or “CM (ret.)” may be used.
  • Deceased: CNM/CM who has passed away.
  • Deactivated: AMCB certified midwife who has had their certification deactivated for an administrative reason, usually to switch certification from CM to CNM or from CNM to CM. 
  • Grace Period: CNM/CM who has been given a temporary extension by AMCB to complete their CMP requirements. If requirements are met by a set date, the midwife is moved back to an Active status, if requirements are not met by the set date, the midwife is moved to a Lapsed status.
  • Lapsed: AMCB certified midwife that did not meet the requirements for recertification. With a Lapsed certification, the title “CNM” or “CM” can no longer be used.
