All IAAO courses & workshops are developed under the guidance of the IAAO Education Subcommittee as part of a curriculum on appraisal procedures and assessment administration offered throughout the world.

Local education coordinators (chapter, jurisdictions, etc.) determine when and where IAAO curriculum will be offered in their area.

The sponsoring agency will handle all registration, including the collection of tuition and fees. The local coordinator's name and contact information can be found on the Course Calendar.

IAAO will provide the program material. This material includes the program's Student Reference Manual, solution pages, and final examination.

The benefits include increased confidence and credibility. Pride is perhaps the greatest benefit of all, in that you proved to yourself that you could set a goal and fulfill the requirements necessary for attaining it.
