Course Design
 
This course implements a blended learning approach which includes:

Mandatory diagnostic test. Before enrolling in this or any other MAI designation course, you must take an Excel diagnostic to demonstrate your mastery of solving appraisal problems using spreadsheets. The diagnostic is intentionally designed to be challenging and ensure participants have adequate Excel skills before taking MAI designation courses.  The diagnostic test is free and can be taken at any time on your personal computer. To register for the test, please click here. For more information, check out the Diagnostic FAQ.

A pre-class, on demand (self-paced) online session component. The on demand component is available beginning 28 days before the live online (synchronous) course begins.  The online component requires the completion of a pre-class assignment at least 2 days before the live online (synchronous) course begins.

30 hours of live online (synchronous) education. Each live online session runs for 4.0 hours each day with at least 2 breaks during that time. The course runs for 8 half-days (Monday – Thursday) over 2 weeks.

A 3-hour proctored exam at an offline testing center. You will have 90 days from the time that you complete the course to take the proctored exam. Testing center locations in your area can be found by clicking on this link: www.pearsonvue.com/ai.
