I recently saw this article posted about a meeting of the minds between the NCB and the FSMTB. Meanwhile, comments continue to arise from various quarters across the country and abroad about what has been described as a lack of clarity.
The following statement from the NCB illustrates the lack of clarity I have heard expressed: “NCBTMB will no longer provide examinations for licensure purposes and will now focus exclusively on delivering quality certification programs.”
What I gather from reading this statement, alongside my own hesitation and those I have read online boil down to matter of civics and politics.
The NCB was for many years the only provider of any kind of exam that could be used as a gateway for the purpose of licensure. The FSMTB emerged and without a word offered in polite language to those of us who either eschew ivory towers or who were outside of them for any reason at all, began deconstructing the NCB, rather than offering an alternative and they did it like Terrorists while the country was worried about more serious concerns and have consistently displayed the audacity of feigned innocence.
This statement “NCBTMB will no longer provide examinations for licensure purposes and will now focus exclusively on delivering quality certification programs” is not worthy of comment honestly. The value of the FSMTB is as dubious as that of the corpse they raped like a body on a battlefield. The NCB has the most dubious leadership at this point to have published that comment.
I remain disgusted beyond words.
