Marriage and Family Therapy Examination
Applicants for licensure are required to pass the national examination in Marital and Family Therapy developed by the Association of Marital and Family Therapy Regulatory Boards (AMFTRB). The AMFTRB Examination is electronically administered by Professional Testing Corporation (PTC) during the third full week of each month, Saturday to Saturday. The exam application deadline is the first Monday of the month preceding the month in which the candidate wishes to take the examination. A complete list of testing dates and exam application deadlines is available at both www.ptcny.com and www.amftrb.org.
Before being made eligible to take the AMFTRB Examination, the candidate must apply for a license with the Michigan Board of Marriage and Family Therapy. You may download the application from this website on the Marriage and Family Therapy profession’s homepage. Applicants will be made eligible to take the AMFTRB Examination as soon as the Educational Limited MFT license is issued or, if applying for a full MFT license, as soon as the education and verification of supervised clinical experience during the educational program are received by the Michigan Board.
Once the applicant is approved to take the AMFTRB Examination, the Michigan Board will provide the applicant with an approval code that must be used to apply online for the examination at https://secure.ptcny.com/apply. You may not register to take the AMFTRB Examination until you receive the approval code from the Michigan Board of Marriage and Family Therapy.
