Description Using the national USPAP course material copyrighted by The Appraisal Foundation, this two-day course covers basic rules for ethical behavior and competent performance. The course, which is designed to comply with USPAP requirements for state licensed or certified appraisers, highlights the role of the appraiser and the implied impartiality often associated with this role. Participants will learn how requirements of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice affect their appraisal businesses.

 

Note. State licensed and certified course participants who wish to complete the 15-Hour National USPAP Course may do so, but it will only count for state CE (elective) credit and will not meet the National USPAP requirement for state licensing retention.
