Recruitment for BAR Licensure Examination Development Consultants

The development of BAR licensure examinations depends greatly on expert consultants, referred to as subject matter experts (SMEs). Their participation is essential to the development of licensure exams for Smog Check inspector, repair technician, and brake/lamp adjuster licenses, and ensures that the exams accurately assess whether candidates possess the required knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to perform tasks on the job safely and competently.

SMEs participate in monthly workshops that are typically conducted on two consecutive eight-hour days in Sacramento. SMEs receive a paid honorarium, in addition to travel reimbursement for their services.
