California Law and Ethics for Marriage and Family Therapists

Are you preparing for the California MFT Law and Ethics Exam?
We're here to help.

Our online exam prep course includes more than 130 sample questions with rationales (including a full-length practice test), more than 10 hours of video content, and more than 15 case examples so you can see how the rules apply in real practice. It's designed to get you ready for the test quickly and efficiently by focusing on the most important elements of state law and professional ethics, including those areas most likely to show up on the exam. And it's taught by Ben Caldwell, who literally wrote the book on California law for MFTs, and has been advocating on behalf of mental health professionals in California for more than a decade.

We have two different versions of this course: A Continuing Education version, and an Exam Prep version. Here are the key differences:

About the test

The California MFT Law and Ethics Exam is a 75-item, 90-minute test that must be attempted in your first year of registration as an Associate marriage and family therapist (Associate MFT or AMFT). The Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) will not renew your registration unless you have at least attempted the test.

Of the 75 items on the exam, 50 are scored. The BBS no longer publishes passing scores, but passing scores in past cycles have generally hovered around 35 out of 50 (70%). The 25 non-scored items are considered experimental, and are being tested for possible inclusion as scored items in future exam cycles.
