I know most of the midwives got emails but I wanted to pass this along especially for the students so that they can become birth registrars.
As a reminder, if you have been AOP-certified within the past 12 months, you may be eligible for AOP recertification online. Please visit the AOP-Certified Entities page https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/cs/aop-certified-entities for further details.
Texas law requires annual certification for each individual who registers births and speaks with unwed parents about establishing a legal relationship between a child and his or her biological father using an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) form. AOP certification is also a requirement for the Texas Vital Statistics’ Birth Registrar Certification. To become AOP-certified, you must pass a certification exam after participating in an AOP training course.
