The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) strives to protect our state's public health and natural resources consistent with sustainable economic development.  The computer-based versions of the TCEQ tests are very user-friendly and you will receive an immediate score upon completion of the test.  All applicants must be pre-approved by the TCEQ before applicants are eligible to take exams.  This CBT (computer based test) is as accurate and reliable as the traditional paper/pencil version.  The time required varies for each test.  The test is tentatively offered on Fridays at 9:00 AM and 1:30 PM.  If you choose to schedule at 1:30 PM, we cannot accommodate an immediate re-test.
