VA Certified Title Examiner™ (VCTE™) Online Course
VLTA is proud to announce the arrival of the Virginia Certified Title Examiner Online Course! The VCTE-Online will be available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year! There will be no onsite classes in 2014, because now the VCTE course is available to you in the comfort of your home or office.
The Certification Course Process
This course entails 16.0 hours of online course work (8 two-hour sessions) followed by a final exam administered by the Koogler Group (see below). Students are required to purchase the VCTE Manual (see below) which includes the cost of the exam. This manual contains the information needed to take the course exam. Those participants receiving a passing grade on the examination will be deemed a Virginia Certified Title Examiner™ (VCTE™). VCTEs will receive laminated ID cards and certificates documenting their certification. VLTA lists all certified examiners as preferred providers on its website. 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 two-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.
