Jurisprudence Learning Exercise

General Information about the Jurisprudence Learning Exercise

NCGS 90-630.1(a) (4) and (b) (5) of the North Carolina Board of Massage and Bodywork Therapy Practice Act states applicants for licensure by endorsement must pass a jurisprudence examination administered by the Board regarding laws and rules adopted by the Board for licensure under this Article. The Board has developed a Jurisprudence Learning Exercise (JLE) for applicants for licensure by endorsement to meet this requirement.  The Board recommends that all applicants for a license complete the JLE.  To successfully complete the JLE you must answer all questions correctly. You may take the JLE at any time during the application process. There is no fee to take the JLE and you may take it more than once if you do not answer all questions correctly on your first try. To prepare for the JLE you need to read the Practice Act and Rules of the North Carolina Board of Massage and Bodywork Therapy.

To take the Jurisprudence Learning Exercise:

  1. Click on the "Logon to Jurisprudence Learning Exercise" link below.
  2. Use the User ID and Password supplied to you by the Board to logon to the JLE.
  3. Once you have logged on, select the JLE by clicking on the round button on the far right of the JLE then clicking on the "Take selected learning exercise / survey button".
  4. Be sure to read the "Attestation" and "Jurisprudence Learning Exercise" information.
  5. Follow the prompts and take the JLE.

Points to remember while taking the Exercise:

If you are applying for licensure by endorsement, you are required to score a 100% on the JLE. The JLE is thirty (30) multiple choice questions randomly pulled from a large bank of questions. Each therapist's JLE will be different. There is a link displayed with each question referring to the particular section of the Practice Act or Rules pertaining to that question. You are allowed to retake the JLE as many times as needed to score 100%. After completing the JLE, a review will be displayed showing which questions were correct and incorrect. Your correct answer will remain from JLE to JLE. When retaking the JLE you only need to change the answers to the questions you missed. To modify your answers, you must finish and quit the current JLE then log back on to restart the exam process.

Finishing and quitting the Jurisprudence Learning Exercise:

If you need to quit the JLE before completing all the questions, just click on the "Summary" button then click on "Finish the Exam" and follow the prompts. This will ensure that any answers you have made will be saved. Do not quit the JLE by closing your browser before you have finished the JLE, use the process as described above. Failure to do so will result in the loss of any answers you have entered into the JLE. Once you have correctly quit the JLE, you will be returned to the logon screen. Your browser can be closed safely at this point. Only scores of 100% will be sent to the Board.


Good Luck
