AMFTRB National Examination in MFT

The Application for National Examination in MFT, the initial application for those seeking LMFT licensure, must be filed within six months of commencement of an applicant’s post-graduate supervised experience.  (See Minn. Rule 5300.0155.)  Upon notification of Board approval of this application, the applicant is provided with a national exam registration code.  This code remains valid for two years and the approved applicant may schedule the exam in any month of choice within that two-year period (testing is NOT immediately required after notification of application approval). If an applicant seeks to take the national exam as soon as possible, the Application for National Examination in MFT must be filed a minimum of three months prior to the month in which the applicant seeks to take the exam and the applicant must complete the criminal background check process in a timely manner to insure timely application completion and review by the Board. (More information regarding the mandatory criminal background check can be found on the  Criminal Background Check page.)   

Please be advised:  Until further notice, all candidates MUST wear a mask or face covering at the Prometric testing center.
