The Certification Course Process
This program will entail 16.0 Hours of onsite course work, 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 Settlement Agent™ (VCTSA™). VCTSA'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 Course will be delivered over a two-day period. Check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. and the class starts at 8:00 a.m. and runs through 5:00 p.m. each day. For course monitoring purposes, there will be a minimum of four sign-in periods. Photo ID will be required at each morning sign-in. There will be one break each morning and afternoon. Lunch is on-your-own each day. No cell phones, computers or other electronic devices permitted. No reading materials [newspapers/work related paperwork] other than course manual permitted during session. Casual dress is encouraged. A sweater or jacket is recommended if you tend to be cold.
The Renewal Process
VCTSA's will be required to renew their certification on a biennium basis (odd number year). Certification will expire on the last day of the year. Renewal will entail completing 16.0 Hours of continuing education (8.0 hours must be TSA specific education) and paying a renewal fee of $25. The VCTSA renewal requirement will cease with the implementation of state licensure.
