Prior to the establishment of FSMTB & MBLEx, NCBTMB was the recognized national exam. Thus, many massage therapists continue to hold a national certification. These massage therapists still qualify?
Davis Hylkema, Washington state
I understand that massage therapists get privilege in all compact states at once. Some other compact privileges require the applicant to pass a particular state's jurisprudence exam before a privilege is issued. Since massage therapists must know each compact state's laws, how does the IMPact ensure that privilege holders have exposure to know and at least how to look up laws and rules of all the different compact states? The concern is for each state's responsibility for public safety.

It is anticipated that Commission rulemaking will clarify the national examination requirement and any grandparenting provision for prior examinations or other experience.
