Hello all,

Rookie question here :)

I’ve looked everywhere and the BHEC website is not clear- but I’m trying to submit an application to take the National MFT exam through amftrb. It keeps asking me for a one time code to send my scores to the licensure board... since I’m at the latter end of fieldwork and all of my course work is completed, I’m not sure where to get this code. The applications on the website are only for licensure, yet I’ve been told that I need to submit an application to take the actual exam... how do I get this code so that scores can be sent to the board or even submit an application to take the MFT exam?

I have sent emails to the licensure email with bhec, but I haven’t gotten a response. Would it better if I called the number listed on the AAMFTRB website?

Thank you,
Rebekah Torres

Hi Rebekah,

The process for getting a code to take the exam is confusing, so don't feel bad about asking. To get a code, you must actually apply for your LMFT Associate license. So you will apply for an "Initial" license through the Online Licensing System. You will need to complete the application, pay the initial licensing fee, and submit proof of completion of the Jurisprudence Exam, and a copy of government-issued ID. After submitting your application, you will need to mail the self-query from the NPDB and complete fingerprinting per Council instructions. You will also get an email asking you to submit the Exam Security Form, which staff will include in the email. If you are still in school, you will need your Program Director to email a letter noting that you are in the last semester of the program. If you have already graduated, you will need the university to send a transcript. The Practicum Documentation Form and Supervisory Agreement form are not needed to get an exam code, but they are needed to get your LMFT Associates. The code will come through the mail, so keep an eye out. I hope this helps and I wish you the best in your journey to be an LMFT!
