AUSTIN, TX –Beginning September 1, 2014, all licensing examinations for the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) and Texas Appraiser Licensing & Certification Board (TALCB) will be administered by Pearson VUE. The new contract was awarded to Pearson VUE at the February meetings of the Commission and Board. After the award, Pearson VUE met with Texas subject matter experts in the real estate and inspector industry to review exam content. While there are no significant changes to the exams, the content outline for each license exam and reference materials have been updated and are available at the Pearson VUE website at www.pearsonvue.com/programs
Pearson VUE will deliver licensing exams through its network of 20 testing centers in Texas, with others nearby in New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. Exam candidates who want to take an exam prior to August 31, 2014 should continue to register with PSI. However, to schedule an exam date after September 1, 2014, eligible exam candidates must contact Pearson VUE.
Pearson VUE may be contacted at 800-997-1248 for exam registrations as early as August 28, 2014. Online exam reservations will be available by October 28, for appraiser candidates and October 29th for all other license holders.
