Scheduling the Exam for National Board of Medication Therapy Management
The examinations offered by the NBMTM are administered by Mettl®. Mettl® is engaged in educational and occupational measurement and provides examination administration to a variety of client organizations. Mettl® assists NBMTM in the administration, scoring, and analysis of the examinations for NBMTM.
Examinations are delivered by computer at home for your convenience. The examination is administered by appointment only, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday except on national holidays. Sunday appointments may be scheduled based on availability. Available dates will be indicated when scheduling your examination. Candidates are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
First-time test takers must create a myNBMTM account prior to schedule a test date.
After you schedule your test, your myNBMTM portal will be updated with your test date and your testing time.
Once an application is approved, candidates will be authorized to schedule and take their certification exam. Notice of authorization to schedule will arrive via email and will be posted to the myNBMTM account. The authorization to take the exam is valid for 180 days.
Once an authorization to schedule is received, candidates may schedule an exam appointment online. NBMTM certification exams are administered by Mettl® internationally. Once an appointment is scheduled, a confirmation email will be sent from Mettl® within approximately 24 hours.
