MFT Exam Information
When you decide you want to take your exam, the first step is to notify the OBLPCT.  Also note that rules have changed and you do not need to wait until all your hours are accumulated.  The exam can now be taken anytime after graduation.  For more information on the MFT exam from the Association of Marriage and Family Regulatory Boards, click here

According to the OBLPCT website,( http://www.oregon.gov/OBLPCT/LMFT.shtml):

If you wish to sit for an exam, contact the Board office. Applicants must provide all necessary information and forms to the Board in order to be reviewed for possible entrance to an upcoming exam.
For Oregon LMFT, the Board will recognize documented passage of the PES Licensing Examination for Marital and Family Therapy taken in other states and the California MFCC written and oral sections.
The Board uses the national Marital and Family Therapy Examination, which is a computer based test administered by the Professional Examination Service (PES) through Prometric Tompson Learning Centers. Applicants must pay exam and exam administration fees to the exam providers. PES charges $220 for the exam plus $75 for use of the administration site for a total of $295.
The Board does not provide a study guide and does not have a list of others that may offer those materials.
PES mails the exam scores to the Board approximately two weeks (working days) after the close of the exam window. Please do not call the office about your scores.

The Board prescribes as the competency portion to be the computerized marital and family therapy examination of the Association of Marital and Family Therapy Regulatory Boards (AMFTRB) in association with the Professional Examination Service.  The AMFTRB establishes the passing score.
The passing score established by the agency verifying passage of its examination, for applicants completing an approved alternative examination. http://www.oregon.gov/OBLPCT/exam.shtml
In addition to the approved competency examination, the board requires passage of an Oregon state laws and rules examination.

Once an applicant's degree and work experience have been completed, then they are ready to take the Law and Rules Examination. This test is mailed to the applicant along with a copy of the law, ORS Chapter 675.705-835 and rules, OAR Chapter 833. This is a pass/fail exam consisting of 31 true/false, multiple choice and fill in the blank questions. No less than 25 questions must be answered correctly in order to pass the exam. http://www.oregon.gov/OBLPCT/Law_Rules_exam.shtml
