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.  

ISA is now offering the Core Course in Appraisal Studies, Live Online. The Core Course is 7 days (September 27-October 3rd, 2021), from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m CST, Monday-Saturday, with the exam given on Sunday. Students need to be present online throughout the entire course in order to receive credit. The exam will be given remotely on the final day of the course, administered through ProctorU.

Students are asked to read the first six chapters of the Core Course Manual prior to arrival and will be expected to read the next day’s chapters in the evenings. Additional homework assignments will be given during class, including a written assignment which will be completed the 4th and 5th evenings.  Laptops will be needed to complete the written assignment. A microphone, webcam, and speakers are required to use ProctorU, click here to make sure that your equipment is compatible. 

The Core Course Manual and 2020-2021 USPAP Manual are required for this course. Either the digital or hard copy versions of both books are accepted. 

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