Individuals should assess their eligibility to participate in the Advanced Fetal Heart Monitoring course. Being that this course is for experienced perinatal clinicians, the Instructor may deny the participant attendance. Even so, participants may seek council or guidance from the instructor in regards to eligibility. Obstetrical providers who lack experience should consider Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring or AWHONN Intermediate Fetal Heart Monitoring.
Furthermore, attending the Intermediate Fetal Monitoring class is not a mandatory prerequisite to Advanced Fetal Heart Monitoring. Regardless, the AWHONN Fetal Heart Monitoring educational pathway recommends the progression from the Intermediate to Advanced course.
