Certification in Electronic Fetal Monitoring (C-EFM®)
This certification is offered with Computer Testing at a Computer Test Center. For a limited time only, it will also be offered through Live Remote Proctoring (LRP). LRP is a secure and non-invasive platform that uses professional proctors and technology to monitor examinees' live while they complete their certification exam. This method of test delivery allows the examinee to take the certification exam from their home, office, or a remote site, using their own computer. LRP as a method of testing will have to be discontinued within 60 days of NCC being notified by our accreditation organization. If you choose this method of testing, you must test your computer before you schedule and schedule it early. Once the date for mandatory shut down is provided, this method of testing will end. Anyone scheduled for LRP beyond that date will have to reschedule at a computer test center. Read the details of LRP prior to scheduling your exam. More information can be found at "Testing with LRP".
EFM BY LIVE REMOTE PROCTORING WITH A SECOND CHANCE FREE is only for those who register for the EFM certification by May 24, 2020, and took the exam using Live Remote Proctoring by May 31, 2020.
Details for those who qualified for the second chance free can be found at Live Remote Proctoring
The purpose of the NCC Electronic Fetal Monitoring Subspecialty Certification is to provide a competency-based examination that tests specialty knowledge and the application of that knowledge for licensed health care professionals in the US and Canada, who utilize the application of electronic fetal monitoring and interpretation of data obtained to provide care to obstetrical patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
This is for those seeking certification for the first time. It is not to be used for the maintenance of an existing EFM credential. C-EFM(®) is the designation used to indicate national certification in Electronic Fetal Monitoring.
Upon achieving NCC EFM Certification (C-EFM ®)) diplomates will be awarded one year of Part IV credit to their personal ABOG dashboard. Part IV credit can be earned in the year of initial certification for 2016-2020.
The ABOG MOC standards now allow participation in ABOG-approved EFM certification to meet the annual Improvement in Medical Practice (Part IV) MOC requirement. This course has been approved to meet ABOG Improvement in Medical Practice requirements for 2016 -2020.
Please review the 2018 MOC Bulletin for further information. NCC will provide ABOG with a list of physicians who are EFM certified each year. If you do not want us to provide your name to ABOG please email us at CONTACT US.
