The Midwife Sonography examination assesses the knowledge, skills and abilities in the areas of the female reproductive system as well as the fetus in the first, second and third trimesters of pregnancy. By earning the Midwife Sonography Certificate, midwives gain a critical edge in promoting public safety in women's point-of-care ultrasound.
In order to earn the Midwife Sonography Certificate, the certified-midwife must pass both required components in the following order:
• Part One: Midwife Sonography Computer-based examination
• Part Two: Practical examination (You may begin acquiring this experience before passing the computer-based examination. See Practical Examination section for details)
