CLASS SCHEDULE

 

Class information and prices subject to change without notice

 

Sorry, tuition payments are non-refundable. Tuition may be transferred
to a different course with advance notification of two business days.

 

 

 

Effective September 1, 2017

 

House Bill 1508, requires training providers who offer educational programs that prepare an individual for an initial license, to notify enrollees in that program of the following:

1.     Potential license ineligibility due to any criminal conviction,

2.     The current TCEQ Criminal History Guidelines, RG 521, and

3.     An applicant’s right to a criminal history evaluation for an initial TCEQ license.

 

To protect the training provider from potential liabilities associated with the notification requirements, TCEQ recommends the providers use the acknowledgement form provided. TCEQ will require documentation to be kept on file for a minimum of 5 years showing that each individual enrolled in the training has received and understood the information listed above by signing and returning to the training provider.

 

A criminal history evaluation is a process done ahead of a license application to determine eligibility for an occupational license.  An applicant is eligible for an evaluation ONLY if they do not have a TCEQ license and intend to submit an application for a license. It is not available if the individual already holds a license with TCEQ.

 

A criminal history evaluation is strongly encouraged if the applicant is applying for a high risk license (as listed in RG-521) and has any of the following convictions or arrests in their criminal history: sexual offenses, violent/assaultive offenses, fraud or falsification of government documents, or property offenses like theft or burglary. A link to this form can be found on the TCEQ Criminal History web page.

 

If you have any questions or need additional information regarding this information, please contact occupational licensing at

(512) 239-6133 or via email at licenses@tceq.texas.gov and specify in the subject line that it is related to HB1508 Implementation.

 

 

As of September 9, 2016, all license applications must be pre-approved before an applicant may register to take an exam.
