MBLEx Test Prep Tutoring
The Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam (MBLEx) was developed to offer the first nationwide standardized licensing exam for the massage and bodywork profession; to allow massage therapists to be mobile (work in most states) and to give state organizations a data point for certification of therapists. In many states, it's mandatory if you want to become a Certified Massage Therapist.
Like any good professional exam, this one is pretty challenging. You will definitely need some focused study time to pass. That's why we've created this organized time for you to prepare. We call them "MBLEx Prep" sessions.
MBLEx prep classes are held by appointment either in person or via the Internet (Zoom, FaceTime, GoToMeeting). After determining your learning needs, you will spend the time with drill, practice, and questioning to hone your test-taking and relevant knowledge and skills.
Each session consists of personalized activities focused on:
- Learning the main areas of focus of the MBLEx
- Using self assessment to determine areas you need to target
- Discovering tips and techniques for reading and analyzing questions
- Participating in discussions about specific content covered by the test
- Accessing and using study questions, learning games, memory tools and other resources
