The Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons has said, “So long and thanks for all the fish!” to Pearson Vue yesterday.
That is correct as of April 1st, 2016 PSI Services LLC will be the new testing service for Real Estate Exams here in the state of Massachusetts. As this is breaking news the board is not giving us any details about the transition just yet.
The notice was posted on the Pearson Vue website yesterday.
According to the Pearson Vue website:
As of March 15, 2016, Real Estate applicants will be able to schedule examinations with PSI Services LLC, for examinations, on or after April 1, 2016. Additional information can be found at the following web site on or around March 15th: psiexams.com
I am encouraging all of our broker and salesperson students that have already completed their prelicensing course, and not taken the real estate exam yet, to do so ASAP to avoid any delays in getting their license.
As word of the transition spreads I am sure that Pearson Vue will be swamped with students trying to take their test before April 1st so I would call Pearson Vue today and schedule the next available exam you can. Here is the number too make an exam reservation (800)274-0501.
You can be sure that we are going to be ferreting out all the details of this process as they unfold and informing you each step of the way.
Here is how you can help us. We are crafting a email to the Director of the Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons about this transition and would love to include your questions and feedback. If you have specific questions about the transition please post them below. As we get the answers to the questions we will detail them here so everyone gets the benefit of the information.
