Alert: New Appraisal Education Requirements
Act Now and Make the Criteria Change an Opportunity
Appraisal Education Updates
The Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) is making a significant change to the criteria for being a Licensed Residential Appraiser.
Applicants for the Licensed Residential Appraiser classification will need to have successfully completed 30 semester hours of college-level coursework. Please note that all changes will take effect on a national level January 1, 2015.
Did you know?
- Trainee level appraisers who complete the “Upgrade to Licensed Level” appraisal course and take the exam before the end of 2014 will be grandfathered in without being required to have the college coursework complete. See the new criteria details here.
- The cost of the upgrade package from Career Webschool is under $800. The average cost of 1 year of college (30 hours) at a standard state institution in the U.S. is more than $8,000.
