I just got a letter from the AMTA stating that
AMTA Board of Directors to announce that it feels the MBLEx, developed and administered by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards, is the best choice for a licensing exam that can lead to portability of practice.

This will not affect the thousands of massage therapists that are nationally certified through the NCTMB. In fact, they encourage massage therapists in unregulated states to take the NCTMB exam as a means of up-holding professionalism in those states. They also will be advocating for those massage therapists licensed under NCTMB so that they will not be forced to take another exam for licensure.

AMTA did not rush into making its decision. Its view was thoroughly researched and openly discussed with the boards of the NCBTMB and the FSMTB. All issues were examined regarding support for the MBLEx exam, as well as its impact on massage therapists and the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.
