NEW The OSSF Site Evaluator (SE) written exam is now exclusively administered via Computer-Based Testing (CBT). As of 4/1/2024, all applicants for a new SE license are required to take the hands-on practical skills exam at the conclusion of the course. After passing the hands-on practical skills exam, applicants can submit an application through OLEA to get approval to take the SE written exam at an approved CBT center.

Conditional approval and course registration confirmation are no longer necessary. Anyone registered for a SE training course after 4/1/2024, that has applied for conditional approval, will be sent a deficiency letter.  Anyone that took the exam prior to 4/1/2024, and did not pass, must contact TEEX to take and pass the hands-on practical skills exam before taking the written exam via CBT.

NEW Occupational Licensing is currently working on a rulemaking project to amend 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapter 30, Occupational Licenses and Registrations, to implement changes to statute made during the 88th Legislative Session and to incorporate additional recommended changes. For more information, please visit the Rulemaking webpage.
