Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Contractors Exam Information

Lower Exam Fees Starting September 1, 2015 - TDLR's mission is to honor the trust of all Texans, ensure public safety and consumer protection, and provide a fair, efficient licensing and regulation environment at the lowest possible cost. A Request for Proposal to seek candidates for the development and administration of TDLR's examinations has been reviewed. The Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation approved and awarded the contract to PSI on July 29, 2015. As a result of the competitive bidding process, TDLR and PSI have lowered the examination fees which will result in a total savings of $250,000 a year for candidates. These lower fees go into effect on September 1, 2015. The fee structure for each license type/exam type is available through the Candidate Information Bulletin link below.
