Course: National USPAP Update 7-Hour

Location: University of Phoenix, Fairfield

Instructor(s): Dawn Molitor-Gennrich, SRA, AI-RRS

This one-day update course, copyrighted by The Appraisal Foundation, focuses on recent changes to USPAP requirements for ethical behavior and competent performance by appraisers. The course, which clarifies several commonly misunderstood aspects of USPAP, will aid participants in all areas of appraisal practice seeking updated competency in USPAP, including those subject to state licensing or certification and continuing education requirements imposed by professional organizations, client groups, or employers.

NOTE: Appraisers must successfully complete the 7-hour USPAP Update Course every two years to meet the USPAP continuing education requirement.

Participants can take the 15-hour USPAP course, but it will only count for hours toward his or her state's continuing education requirement; the 15-hour program will not meet the USPAP continuing education requirement. 

Attendees must bring their own copy of the 2016-17 version of USPAP to class. To purchase a copy from The Appraisal Foundation, go to this link: www.appraisalfoundation.org
