NCBTMB Announces Launch of Online Practice Exam

Introducing a new Online Practice Exam and Study Tool

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Illinois (August 6, 2012) – The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) announced today the launch of one of many new initiatives for 2012. The Online Practice Exam and Study Tool will properly prepare massage therapy students for their national exams and Certification credentials. Early beta-testers report that the new tool is far superior to the previous practice exam that was discontinued earlier this year.

The Online Practice Exam and Study Tool offers thousands of questions covering relevant course-specific material. The user can choose to take a practice test that is preloaded with 160 random questions, or students may also administer the exam in specific areas of concentration, including:

  • Body Parts
  • Pathology
  • Assessment
  • Anatomy, Physiology, and Kinesiology
  • Massage Application
  • Professional Standards

The Practice Exam is set up in levels to enable students to answer easier questions while learning, and then advance to the more difficult questions when they are further along in their studies. It also allows the flexibility to review the incorrect answers and provides the test-taker with the correct responses to those questions.

To get more information on the Online Practice Exam and Study Tool, go to the NCBTMB website at or call 800-296-0664.

The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) was established in 1992 as an independent, nonprofit organization fostering the highest standards of ethical and professional practice in the delivery of therapeutic massage and bodywork through recognized credentialing programs. NCBTMB examinations are currently accepted or recognized in statute or rule by 38 states. There are nearly 80,000 professionals with NCBTMB certification. NCBTMB's certification programs are accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies.
