CPI is committed to supporting professionals to maintain and renew certifications through the following transfer requirements.
I ALREADY COMPLETED A DOULA WORKSHOP
We accept participants who have taken a doula workshop from a different organization, but never completed their certification and now wish to become certified doulas. Your training workshop must have been within the last 3 years; email your attendance certificate from the doula training you took. Pay the transfer fee of $95. Next you would complete all the other requirements of the Doula Certification program, starting with step 2 through step 4.
I AM CERTIFIED WITH A DIFFERENT ORGANIZATION
You may hold dual certification with CPI or transfer from a different organization. If you are currently a certified doula within the last two years we only require that you document 8 contact hours to become CPI (Childbirth Professionals International) certified and verify assisting at 2 births or providing postpartum support.
Contact hours are accepted from different organizations. Transfer fee is $95. There is no transfer fee if contact hours are from CPI.
2. Email a copy of your current doula certificate or attendance from doula training.
3. Email a copy of your contact hours
4. Complete form documenting birth/postpartum support for 2 families (a link will be emailed)
