Appraisal Foundation conducting a national job analysis study

The Appraisal Foundation’s Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) and PSI Services LLC is conducting a survey for a national job analysis study of real estate appraisal professionals. The study will help update the National Uniform Licensing and Certification Examinations used across the U.S. to help ensure real estate appraisal professionals meet acceptable standards for competent practice. The purpose of the job analysis is to identify tasks and competencies reflective of the real estate appraiser job role. There are three parts of the survey: Part I covers background information, Part II covers professional activities (tasks), and Part III reviews a list of knowledge areas. The survey will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes to complete and participants do not have to complete the survey in one sitting. You may exit the survey and return to complete later. However, you must start and finish the survey from the same device.  The deadline to complete is Friday, June 5. If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact aramirez@psionline.com

Online version of 331 now available

An online version of Course 331 - Mass Appraisal Practices & Procedures is now available as a self-study course. The course, previously available in a group cohort version, is now available for students to complete at their own pace. Also check out the IAAO course map for newly announced live online courses put on by third party organizations.
