The blocks/links below are only to apply to take the exam through LDH you must also register (further down/tickets) with LRWA for class (exam and class are two different things). Just because you register for an LRWA class doesn’t automatically enable you to take the exam or applying for an exam doesn’t register you for LRWA class.

Exam Applications and Class Registrations are two different things

EXAM Application = LDH in Baton Rouge
CLASS Registration = LRWA in Kinder
