The Advanced Fetal Monitoring course expands on the knowledge and physiological principles presented in the AWHONN Intermediate Fetal Monitoring Course. This course uses a case study approach to focus on the analysis of maternal -fetal physiology related to complex clinical information and fetal heart.
AWHONN Advanced Fetal Heart Monitoring is a 1-day in-person or virtual session led by experienced perinatal clinicians. This course is designed for perinatal clinicians who previously completed the AWHONN Intermediate Fetal Monitoring Course, a comparable fetal monitoring educational program and/or who hold certification or additional credentials in fetal heart monitoring. In particular, this course expands on the knowledge and principles presented during the Intermediate Fetal Monitoring class. Significantly, this course uses a case study approach focusing on the analysis of complicated FHM patterns.
In summary, the course components include:
– Complex case studies that include recommended interventions
-Communicating with colleagues
-Advanced principles of maternal-fetal physiology
-Optional online post-test is available
Upon completion of this course an optional online test is available for nurse contact hours/ CME with the purchase of the 6th edition student materials.

Individuals should assess their eligibility to participate in the Advanced Fetal 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 a basic / foundational fetal Monitoring class or the AWHONN Intermediate Fetal Heart Monitoring course.
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 basic/ foundational , the Intermediate, then the Advanced course.
To obtain nurse contact hours/ CME units, participants must attend the entire course and complete an online feedback form.
