Welcome to the CLTI section of the FLTA website.
In this time of transition, FLTA is making every effort to ensure all of our colleagues have the opportunity to earn the designations of CLC and CLS. With that being said, we would like to ask that you stay tuned in the coming days for more updated information regarding the testing availability, dates and deadlines for applications for the 2021 CLC and CLS testing.
The link for the 2021 Application Package below will be made active in the coming days. However, please see the Other Helpful Materials noted below. These are study materials such as outlines for the respective designation tests, as well as notable information regarding the structuring and layout of the tests. These are invaluable resources that will aid you in preparing for the tests.
Should you have any questions, please contact Allison Fowhand. Secretary of the CLT Institute-FLTA, at 850-624-8671.
Wishing everyone our sincerest regards and many thanks for all your hard work during these times. Please remember that we are in this together and we are here for you. Stay Safe, friends!
Here's the link to the 2021 APPLICATION PACKAGE. The full packet includes the Resume Form and the Employer Certification Form.

Searchers and Closers tests are predominantly essay tests and are designed to take 8 hours to complete. Each test is divided into two parts, a.m. & p.m. The morning is primarily essay for both tests. The afternoon sessions are legal descriptions, drawings, true/false, etc., for searchers, and closing packages, prorations, multiple choice, etc., in the afternoon for the closers. The tests are reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis, so you can be assured you will be tested on the most current and up to date information.
The Basic Title Insurance Handbook and the Booth Supplement Chapters are no longer available in PAPER form. The data is now available on a Flash drive, and can be obtained by printing the purchase order form (Hand Book & Supplement) and sending it with your check to the address listed on the form. We are sorry, but paying for it by check is the only option at this time.
