Foreign Language Fluency Testing Policy

Please note that Kansas City Association of REALTORS® will pay for all costs incurred for a member to be certified by LTI Language Testing International in a specialized foreign language as long as the following guidelines are met:

  • Member completes the Oral Proficiency Interview by computer within the specified date range allotted after test is scheduled. Cancellations must be done  in advanced to avoid any no show charges 
  • Member completes phone verbal testing for more specialized languages and successfully passes fluency requirements. Results will be available within 24 hours of test.

Once results have verified fluency, members will be added to our Certified Foreign Language Specialist list.

Any REALTOR® member who undergoes LTI's Testing's examination agrees to assist fellow members with translation services during a transaction when there are clear and apparent language barriers with clients .
