SPECIAL NOTE FOR VIRTUAL CONTINUING EDUCATION for 2020/2021:
It is important to note that the AI educational
programs that may be offered by virtual delivery *ARE NOT* approved in every state. Some states DO NOT allow
virtual education. ALL participants MUST check state approvals prior to registering for any chapter offered
Appraisal Institute program.
The definition of “Virtual” delivery format is the temporary exception (beginning 3/15/2020 until 12/31/2021) allowing previously approved classroom CE to be offered on a web platform, without additional submission or acceptance from the International Distance Education Certification Center (IDECC).
Please note that “Synchronous” delivery format is altogether different in that approval from IDECC has been granted and instructors have received the CDEI designation for distance learning instruction.
NOTE: Some AI educational programs may not be approved in every state. It is important that all participants
check state approvals prior to registering for any Appraisal Institute program.
