Member ISA since 2001

Certified Member, International Society of Appraisers—ISA CAPP This is the highest level of recognition the Society can bestow. It is achieved only by undertaking a long term, intensive course of studying appraisal principles, and passing rigorous examinations on the theory and practice of professional appraising, as well as on ethical standards of practice and legal considerations.

Attaining the designation of CAPP is an outstanding professional achievement for personal property appraisers. Currently, there are fewer than 110 in the United States and Canada.
