NBMTM and Scantron join forces to improve certification process
WASHINGTON, Jan. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Board of Medication Therapy Management (NBMTM) is announcing their immediate collaboration with Scantron to advance their board certification exam process. This alliance demonstrates NBMTM's continued efforts to improve pharmaceutical care and empower pharmacists.
Working with a renowned company like Scantron will streamline the process, improve exam security, and increase access to exam-taking facilities. Scantron's 1,350 test centers worldwide staffed with proctors who have successfully completed Scantron's ANSI-accredited certificate program will help move NBMTM toward accreditation with the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
"Although live, remote proctoring may be convenient for many of our exam candidates, our switch to physical, on-site proctoring will enable us to move our organization toward NCCA accreditation," said Dustin Thomas, PharmD, Executive Director.
NBMTM strives to improve the quality of pharmaceutical care by providing reliable certification in Medication Therapy Management (MTM). Those seeking to gain or renew certification will be able to use Scantron's services while taking BCMTMS exams.
