Important Note: Mandatory Diagnostic Test
Before enrolling in this or any other MAI designation course, you must pass a diagnostic test. The Excel diagnostic tests your mastery of solving appraisal problems using spreadsheets. This newly released diagnostic test was intentionally designed to be challenging and ensure participants have adequate Excel skills before taking MAI designation courses. For more information, check out the Diagnostic FAQ.

 

Excel is used extensively in the MAI designation courses; it is highly recommended that you know how to perform the necessary appraisal functions in Excel to succeed in this course.

The diagnostic test is free and can be taken at any time on your personal computer. To register for the test, please click here.

This course implements a blended learning approach, which includes:
  • A pre-class, 2-hour online session
  • 35 hours of traditional classroom education
  • A 3-hour exam on the 6th morning.

You will be asked to clear the calculator’s memory before and after the examination. Only one calculator is permitted in the testing room. Examinees taking most AI exams may bring their own calculator to use during the exam. Laptops, cellular phones, tablets, iPads, wearable technology (smart watch, Apple Watch, Google Glass, etc.), and other devices that can store data or connect to the Internet are NOT permitted during the exam. In addition, all watches, wallets, bags, and purses must be removed and stored out of reach prior to taking the exam.
