The Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards Wants to Hear from the Profession
Job Task Analysis Survey and Sexual Harassment Survey are Here
The Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB) invites massage and bodywork therapy professionals to participate in the 2022 Job Task Analysis (JTA) Survey. This survey, which will be available beginning February 22, 2022, seeks to ensure that the Massage & Bodywork Licensing Examination (MBLEx) reflects current practice.
Practitioners with all levels of experience are invited to participate in the JTA. The survey is a formal process for determining or verifying what massage and bodywork therapists do in practice. This information is used to determine the content of the Massage & Bodywork Licensing Examination (MBLEx) and make sure it is relevant to the practice of massage and bodywork therapy.
The 2022 JTA will be made public, for use within the profession. The JTA is administered every five to seven years. In its previous iterations in 2007, 2012, and 2017, the survey garnered responses from thousands of professionals. This input adds to the integrity of the examination process, contributes to efforts leading to portability for therapists, and supports overall credibility of the profession.
A separate survey follows the JTA that takes about five minutes to complete. The FSMTB is asking massage and bodywork therapists to provide information about their experience(s) with sexual harassment by clients.
