The Association of Marital and Family Therapy Regulatory Board (AMFTRB) is partnered with the Professional Testing Corporation (PTC). Candidates must submit applications to the State of Alaska Board of Marital and Family Therapy for approval to sit for the examination; there are one-week testing opportunities every month. The application deadline will be the 1st of the month prior to the applicant’s chosen testing period. Examination scores will be sent directly from AMFTRB/PTC to the individual approximately 20 days subsequent to the close of the applicant’s testing window.

To begin the examination application process in the state of Alaska, a candidate must first meet the requirements of licensure as a Marital & Family Therapy Associate.
