VA Certified Title Examiner™ (VCTE™) Online Course
February 1, 2014 VLTA will launch the VA Certified Title Examiner Course through its online portal. There are no onsites classes scheduled for the 2014 year.

The Certification Course Process
This course will entail 16.0 hours of online course work (8 - 2 hour sessions), required purchase of the text book and the taking of the exam. Those participants receiving a passing grade will be deemed a Virginia Certified Title Examiner™ (VCTE™). VCTE's will receive laminated ID cards and certificates documenting their certification. VLTA is notified of those who have passed or failed the exam on a weekly basis. Processing those who have passed the exam can take up to ten business days.
The 16-hour Online Course is delivered in 8-2 hour sessions. Participants have up to ninety-days (90-days) to complete all sessions to be eligible to take the certification exam. Those who do not complete the sessions within 90-days will need to re-purchase the course to begin the process again. No extensions will be offered.
