BTI Grads Maintain 98% Pass Rate on the MBLEx

February 13th, 2014

The results are in… 44 of 45 BTI graduates who took the Massage & Bodywork Licensing Examination (MBLEx) in 2013 passed that test! This 98% pass rate compares to a 2013 pass rate of 79% for all North Carolina massage schools, and only 72% for all schools in the country.

Since the inception of the MBLEx in 2008, BTI grads have maintained an amazing 98% pass rate, with 227 out of 232 students passing this important test for state licensure on the first try! What is the secret for this success?

It’s a combination of factors: superbly qualified teachers and academic support staff, a well-designed curriculum that exceeds the scope of the exam, and highly-motivated students. In addition, BTI only admits students into the Massage Therapy Diploma Program who are deemed to have the resources necessary to succeed in the profession.

We are extremely proud of our faculty, staff and students for maintaining such a high level of achievement. It’s all part of our commitment to providing Learning that Changes Lives!
