The Spanish study guides for the remaining exams will be released over the next few weeks.

In addition, CSLB is in the process of getting 10 exams translated into Spanish, including the Law and Business, B – General Building, C-8 – Concrete, C-9 – Drywall, C-15 – Flooring and Floor Covering, C-27 – Landscaping, C-33 – Painting and Decorating, C-36 – Plumbing, C-39 – Roofing, and C-54 – Ceramic and Mosaic Tile.

Spanish-speaking applicants can still use a translator for the remaining exams that are not being translated.
