Students enrolling in ISA’s Online Core Course program use the same text materials as the onsite course offerings coupled with a series of interactive learning exercises and open book quizzes that must be completed as the course progresses.

Each student is assigned a personal instructor who answers questions and reviews the final appraisal project. Students are allowed six months to complete this course, with a maximum of two three–month extensions available at a cost of $200 each. Successful completion of all assignments and exams are required for credit in this course. Computer and email skills are required.

This is the “original” complete appraisal methodology course for personal property appraising.  Its thorough scope includes appraisal objectives, intended uses, market identification and analysis, research methods and skills, ethics and professional conduct, and a detailed presentation of report formats and checklists. This course sets the standards that others imitate.

The encyclopedic manual includes appraisal theory, identification techniques, report writing, ethics, and legal issues applicable to appraisers. Students learn the techniques of networking and are able to apply their new skills and knowledge in writing complete appraisal reports that are both ISA and USPAP compliant. Minimal computer skills are required.

All cancellations and transfer requests must be in writing and received two weeks (14 days) within the first date of the class. All cancellations and transfer requests are subject to a $200  fee based on course cost. Distance Education course material must be returned before a refund of the remaining tuition will be sent.

A payment plan is available for this course for ISA members. Click here to learn more about ISA's payment plan policy.
