BCMTMS Exam Changes Announced

Starting January 1, 2021, the BCMTMS exam will be administered in testing windows. Candidates will have the option to take their exam through Scantron’s testing centers and its live-online proctoring platform. The board has determined that the testing window model will ensure the psychometric soundness of the BCMTMS exam, which is needed in compliance with NCCA accreditation standards. Keep in mind, candidate’s ability to take the exam through live-online proctoring (LOP) in 2021 is temporary due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Candidates approved by the board to be eligible from November 1 to December 3, 2020, will have the window-based eligibility, which will only allow them to select one out of the four testing windows available.

Candidates approved by the board to be eligible BEFORE November 1, 2021, will be allowed to select one testing window out of the number of testing windows available according to their one-year period-based eligibility.

NOTICE: As previously mentioned, starting January 1, 2021, the new BCMTMS Examination Content Outline will be in effect.

What has changed? The new examination content outline is very similar to the outgoing (current) examination content outline with regards to subject matter, but provides better clarity on the knowledge, skills, and abilities that a candidate may be tested on.

Why did we change the examination content outline? As new practices and technology develop, the job roles and tasks of a BCMTMS naturally evolve too. In order to ensure that the BCMTMS program remains current and valid, NBMTM periodically conducts job-task analyses to determine the need for change.

Learn more about the new BCMTMS Examination Content Outline (effective January 1, 2021).
