Real Estate Licensing Exam and Covid-19 - PSI testing center update

In compliance with Federal and State directives regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), The PSI testing service has temporarily closed the testing sites where the State real estate exam is administered. The sites are closed until April 30, 2020. Scheduling of exams continues.

Your successful completion of the course will be reported to PSI who will then email you instructions for scheduling the exam and available dates. You may schedule any available date.

According to PSI: “candidates can reschedule up to and including the day of testing at no penalty and no documentation required. NOTE: In most cases, candidates can reschedule their examinations on-line and they are encouraged to do so. If a candidate chooses to reschedule through our candidate support call center, they may experience longer than usual wait times under the current circumstances.”

Credit for course completion is valid for up to two years following the date of completion and the State exam may be scheduled at any time during that two-year period.

If you have any questions regarding the scheduling of your State exam or any other questions or concerns, please let us know. We are here for you in these challenging times.

A REALTOR® is a licensed real estate agent who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, (NAR) the largest trade group in the country.

Every agent is not a REALTOR®.  You become a REALTOR® after you pass your real estate course, pass the state license exam, join a real estate company and then join the National Association of REALTORS®.

According to the NAR, the term REALTOR has one, and only one, meaning:
"REALTOR® is a federally registered collective membership mark which identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics."

Michael Fair, President and Director of Your House Academy is an NAR member.
