"I like how organized, detailed, and repetitive your program is laid out. I have used other online programs and books for the National MFT exam and they gave too much information that overwhelmed me.  Your program definitely covers the topics and your mock exams are great examples of questions on the exam. Thank you." -Jill Fishman

The AMFTRB National MFT Exam is a computer-based standardized exam. The exam includes 180 multiple-choice questions. Test takers are given 4 hours to complete the exam questions. Special accommodations can be requested by individuals who meet the criteria based on the Americans with Disabilities Act. In addition, certain states provide special arrangements for English Language Learners (see below for additional information).

The passing score for the National MFT Exam is established by a panel of expert judges and will change with each exam testing period. The passing score will shift up or down depending on the determined level of difficulty of each exam question; the easier the questions, the higher the passing score, and the more difficult the questions, the lower the passing score. The majority of states will use the passing score that is set by the AMFTRB; however, some jurisdictions set their own passing score. Test takers do not receive their results immediately; scores are sent to appropriate state licensing board and mailed to you within 20 business days of your exam date.

Eligibility to sit for the exam will differ for each state that accepts the AMFTRB National MFT Exam for licensure. You will need to contact your state licensing board for the application and to determine eligibility requirements. Once you are approved by your state licensing board to sit for the AMFTRB National MFT Exam, you will receive an approval letter that will include an approval code and a link to the PTC Online Application System. Once you receive approval, complete the PTC application and submit payment for the examination/testing fee. PTC will email you a Candidate ID and Scheduling Authorization within 6 weeks of your testing period.

The answer to this question will vary based on the state you are moving to and requirements established by the state’s MFT licensing board. The first step will be to apply to the state MFT licensing board. Once that state MFT board reviews your application and credentials, they will inform you of any deficits or if you are eligible to sit for the AMFTRB National MFT Exam. You must apply to sit for the National MFT Exam through the state’s MFT licensing board in which you plan to practice. You cannot sit for the exam without taking this step. Here is an overview of requirements by state.

The California Board of Behavioral Sciences is actively pursuing increased reciprocity for MFTs. To date, several states will accept the California MFT Clinical Exam, which means MFTs moving to these states may not have to take the AMFTRB National MFT Exam. Check with the state’s licensing board to determine if the California MFT Exam will fulfill the exam requirement.

The National MFT Exam has more questions than the California MFT Clinical Exam (200 versus 170). The content areas have some overlap, but the National MFT Exam covers more domains (aka knowledge areas). The domains that are tested on the National MFT Exam can be found here. The National MFT Exam has a larger share of recall-based questions, whereas the California Clinical MFT Exam is mostly comprised of reasoning-based questions. However, The National MFT exam does include exam questions that will test your critical thinking skills.

A

There is some overlap between the content that is tested on the National MFT exam and the California Clinical MFT exam. However, there are also significant differences in the content and types of questions that appear on each exam. Each program teaches the content and strategies designed to meet the unique needs of each exam. For this reason, it is not appropriate to use one program for both exams. If you are using TDC to prepare for both exams we would be happy to give you a discount code as a thank you for your loyalty.

Course Reviews

While I believe this course was pertinent to my passing my MFT licensing exam, I cannot help but be annoyed at the amount of spelling and grammar errors throughout. HIPAA was spelled as HIPPA in one section. That is inexcusable for this type of study guide.

There is no way I would have passed the National MFT exam without TDC. The sections are divided in a way that is very manageable and the audio lessons are so helpful. The tests were great not only to see where I was and what I needed more study time on, but I was able to use them as a night before the exam study guide. I have been recommending the program to everyone who still needs to take the test! The coaches are also super helpful and get back to you right away!

I absolutely love TDC Study Center. It is a comprehensive and well-organized program. I used TDC for the AMFTRB National Exam and I passed on the first try.

I am an auditory and visual learner. What worked best for me was following the recommended study outline. I also took notes as I listened to each recording. The next day I found it helpful to review my notes to reiterate what I heard and to keep the information fresh in my memory.

I also liked having the option to listen to the audios as much as I needed to. Often times, I heard information that I missed when I previously listened. The quizzes and mock exams helped to steer me to study specific areas where I was weak in. The rationales were also helpful because they allowed me to strengthen my understanding and have a lot of Ah moments.

At the end of the program I felt confident about the information I had studied. As I approached my test date, I felt well prepared, although I didn’t know how much I really knew. I felt full of information and I was able to teach the concepts of each theory to my family members. They seem to enjoy hearing about all of the details to help families resolve their conflict. I highly recommend this program and I am grateful for having this resource.

I started studying in April for a test in July. I took my time, only studying 3-4 days/week for no more than 2-3 hours (as recommended). I continuously got 75%-77% on the mock exams and while that was passing, i really wanted to breakthrough to 80% before taking the exam. I was able to do it for the AMFTRB mock exam but not TDC mock exams. I was very nervous after the exam- felt like i studied for a different exam- the wording of questions was different, felt odd....but alas, i got that 82% when i took it and am so grateful for the guidance of the TDC materials, lectures and suggestions/advice. I believe they are preparing you for a harder exam than the one you take, and that's great!

I can not imagine studying for this exam on my own. The wealth of information that was organized and scheduled in a way that made it seem doable was phenomenal. The test taking strategies were fantastic and real, including taking care of your body before the exam.

Since I failed I am glad that TDC will stay with me through this process till I pass.

This program was phenomenal! It set me up for success and I passed with flying colors. Well worth the investment. Thank you!

I graduate last year 2020 in the middle of the pandemic. I wasn't sure how to even begin to study or prepare for the national test. Then, I found the TDC website. This is an excellent prep program for the national MFT exam. You don't need to study any other material. The lectures and Quick Study handouts were awesome! It was well worth the price. Thank you so much for the presenting a step by step study format.

TDC was outstanding at helping me organize study materials and getting me on a consistent study regimen. The program covered all the content necessary to pass the exam, and helped me learn in a way that was efficient and long lasting. Want to pass the MFT exam? Use TDC!

I passed on the first attempt taking the exam. I studied consistently for 6 weeks and I passed with a really good score. On exam day I felt confident, prepared and ready. Run, do not walk, to get this program. It was worth every cent.

If you work the steps then you will pass your test no doubt

TDC is a game changer!!!!! If you are thinking about getting it ... just do it! It made studying so simple and I felt really support. I am truly forever grateful!

TDC was not easy! I was overwhelmed at first by the sheer amount of information to memorize, but slowly, bit by methodical bit, with the program's structured guidance, I got there. The TDC practice exams are, I would say, even harder than the actual exam. By the end of my studies, I was scoring in the low 70s on my final mock exams. On the actual exam, I got an 85. Feeling so incredibly relieved, and so incredibly grateful. Also, studying with TDC just made me a better therapist. There was a lot in there I wished I'd learned in grad school.

I used TDC to pass my MFT exam in California years ago. And I just used it again to pass the National MFT Exam. It works! It is digestible and easy to follow. It works! I recommend it

I appreciate the developers of this program. It did not only helped me prepare for the exam but it was a very nice refresher on theories and important MFT topics. I appreciate the study guides and mock exams as those really prepared me for the main exam.

I had purchased flashcards and other study guides, quiz apps, and watched test prep videos on YouTube, yet when I found practice exams online, I didn't do well. By and large, I understood the content that I was being tested on, but I didn't understand the specific ways that the test requires you to think. None of the other study materials I had found provided insight into that, which meant that (for example) if two options were both good or both things I would ask, I felt like I was just trying to guess which one the test wanted me to prioritize. TDC's program broke down exactly what the test wanted to see, and after going through the program, I passed the exam on the first try with a score of nearly 90%. I would also especially recommend it to auditory learners like myself, as the recorded lectures were very helpful.

The idea of this exam frightened me to my core. TDC came highly recommended by my peers and I’m so glad I bought and worked through this system. Amanda is right, you don’t feel like you are passing that exam when taking it. The prep, the pep talks, the encouragement, the audio, the mock exams- it all prepared me to do well! I highly encourage anyone taking the MFT exam to use TDC. Thank you so much for helping me pass on my first try! I’m so grateful!

TDC gave me an outstanding amount of confidence and support leading up to this anxiety inducing exam! I am not great at creating study schedules and staying on track with them. TDC gave me the EXACT resources I needed to not only pass this exam on the first try, but pass it with flying colors. From the lectures to the handouts, to the mock exams, this program had everything I needed and more. I could not be happier with what was offered and the results I got!

I have used TDC twice now. Once, to help me study and prepare for the California Law and Ethics Exam. Second, to help me study and prepare for the National MFT Exam. As a result of TDC's thoroughness, organized study plan, and overall excellence, I was able to pass both exams! I took each exam several years apart from one another and was successful both times on my first attempt! TDC has been an integral part in helping me to press forward with my career even when I moved states in the middle of my internship!

Thank you!!!!!!!
