The Testing and Education Services Unit serves as the governing body covering testing and education needs for 29 licenses administered by the Bureau of Commercial Services.

The Testing and Education Services Unit also approves schools providing the pre-licensure courses to candidates applying for a real estate salesperson, real estate broker and real estate appraiser license.

This unit provides the review and approval of the sponsors and courses for the continuing education of real estate salespersons, real estate brokers and real estate appraisers. This unit also maintains and updated listing of the continuing education hours for the same licenses.
