This class will be held via interactive virtual classroom technology. It is the student's responsibility to have the required equipment – dependable Internet access, computer with webcam and microphone.

If you are seeking credit from a state outside of California, check with your state licensing board to make sure that it will grant approval for (1) an out-of-state virtual classroom offering, (2) allows reciprocal credit if approved by the host state and/or (3) accepts offerings from an out-of-state provider prior to registering. This is a nationally-developed Appraisal Institute program so credit may be available from other states.  However, some states outside of California may have additional reporting and or pre-approval requirements that the chapter is not able to comply with.

There is NO examination required for this virtual offering.
