The State Exam Outline has changed!!!
Currently there are three major testing companies that administer the state licensing exam across the country: Pearson Vue, PSI Services, LLC (PSI) and Applied Measurement Professionals, Inc. (AMP). Each company provides a detailed content outline of topics that comprise the national portion of the salesperson pre-license state exam.
For the past several years, AMP has been under contract with the Alabama Real Estate Commission to provide the state licensing exam and thus the AMP detailed content outline has been used in salesperson pre-license courses in Alabama. Also, the state licensing exam was comprised of AMP-based questions.
In January 2016, PSI acquired AMP, but did not immediately replace the AMP outline and exam questions with the PSI outline and exam questions. That will change on January 1, 2019. At the beginning of the year the PSI outline will be in effect and the AMP outline will become obsolete. Additionally, the pools of PSI questions and AMP questions will be combined into one large question pool. The state licensing exam will pull questions from the combined pool beginning January 1, 2019.
Why should this be a concern for students? Since the AMP outline has been in effect for many years, salesperson pre-license courses, final exams and cram courses naturally have been based on the AMP outline. The Education Department of the Alabama Real Estate Commission has reported to instructors that there are not many changes that will affect the exam. Nevertheless there ARE changes and I would recommend that students pass the state exam BEFORE the end of the year while most AMP-based test prep questions and content are still in use on the state licensing exam.
