FAQ

  • How much does the course cost?

    Through a small group cohort, the course is $345 per participant. This includes the on-demand portion, 4 hours of live instruction, and the loan of a supply kit (we pay shipping/return shipping with the U.S., including Puerto Rico). Additional fees apply if you need to attend the make-up session, choose to purchase a Keeper Kit, need a skills test session outside the times provided, etc.

  • Is there a scholarship for Midwives of Color?

    Yes, there is a $60 discount for Midwives of Color. If you qualify, please email jesica@HiveCE.com for details prior to enrollment. We cannot apply this retroactively.

  • What do you mean by a "cohort?" Isn't this an online course?

    When enrolling in this course, you are enrolling to attend a live small group session on a specific date, and to complete the on-demand portion and pass the written test prior to that date. Each live small group session has only six participants (your cohort), plus Holly Scholles and Jesica Dolin.

  • What happens during the live small group session?

    The live small group session is a virtual meeting with a small group of midwives (6 participants) to troubleshoot areas that need additional learning, and to practice suturing with direct feedback from Holly.

  • Can I switch to another cohort?

    You may switch to another cohort if it is at least 30 days until your currently scheduled cohort, and if there is space available in the cohort you wish to switch to. There is no fee to switch if the above criteria are met. (If the above criteria are not met, you may not switch, and will need to re-enroll at the full price.)

  • What is required to obtain the CE credit?

    In order to obtain the CE credit, you must: complete the on-demand portion, past the written test, attend and participate in the small group practice session, pass your skills test, complete the course evaluation, and return your kit. (8 hours of CE through May 2022, 10 hours of CE June 2022 and forward)

  • What if I want to take the online portion only, and don't want to attend the live sessions?

    If you'd like to only take the on-demand portion, you may email jesica@HiveCE.com for this to be arranged for you. Please note that there is no CE credit awarded, and no discount provided from the usual small group cohort price.

  • Uh...why do I have to pass TESTS for CE?

    This course was designed not only for continuing education, but also to meet the criteria of a "hands-on" course for NARM's Midwifery Bridge Certificate, and to meet specific educational requirements for some states. (Plus, we assume those that choose to take this course want to be able to suture correctly when finished!)

  • Are private sessions available?

    Yes, you may take the course for $499 if you wish to have a live session that is for you and only you. Or, you can find one friend/colleague who would like to have a live session just for the two of you, for $399/each. Please email jesica@HiveCE.com to arrange for these options.
