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 is in two sections and includes a resource directory of over 200 pages, including computer research sites, useful forms for your appraisal practice, and abridged law cases worthy of mention.  The on-site class is presented in a user friendly manner with many group activities that reinforce written and visual information.  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.  Minimum computer skills are required and laptop use in the classroom is encouraged.

Pre–course work is required for the onsite course so early registration is encouraged. Onsite registration closes two weeks prior to the course with extra shipping fees charged for late registration.

The Core Course is 7 days, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Exam is given the last day with release by12:00 p.m. 

Course materials need to be purchased and must be brought with to the class.
