Applicants must complete the first eight pages of the licensure packet and return it to the Allied Board of Mental Health prior to the initial day of the testing window. Upon review, the Allied Board of Mental Health will send an invitation to take the test, including the registration process and exam fees.

Testing windows in Massachusetts are the third full week of every month (Saturday to Saturday). The national exam can be completed at any Prometric Testing Center in the United States.

The Family Solutions Institute provides print and online study materials. Applicants can receive more information about the national exam on the AMFTRB website.

If you’ve already taken the national exam and are moving to Massachusetts from another state, please contact the AMFTRB to request a score transfer.
