Renewing an expired MFT license in Massachusetts

was "current."

Allied Mental Health & Human Service Professionals in Massachusetts.

1. Which renewal cycles do you need
    catch-up CE's for?
2. How many CE credits do you need
    for each renewal cycle?
3. Are you going to be required to re-take
    the National MFT Licensing Examination?
4. What fees will you have to pay to renew
    your license?
5. What licensing or continuing education
    requirements have changed since you were
    last current?

3. Determine what Continuing Education credits you already have that will qualify
for renewal of your license, and what
additional credits you will need.

 

Qualifying CE activities are those that were:

1. Pre-certified by FDA/CE Certifications for
MAMFT.
2. Offered directly by AAMFT.

 

 

4. For any non-MAMFT certified CE activities
you have already taken since the last date of your license being current, apply through this organization, FDA/CE Certifications,
to receive credit retroactively.

Fees to review CE activities for past renewal cycles are:
- $40.00 per renewal cycle (2 year period).

5. For any additional CE credits you need to complete your renewal, for any renewal cycle(s), register for MAMFT pre-certified CE activities or FDA/CE's "Read for CE" program.

- No FDA/CE fees apply to pre-certified activities.
- "Read for CE" fees apply (see registration page).
- Hold your verification of attendance for these activities and submit copies to the Board directly along with your license renewal application.
