IAAO educational programs are developed as part of a curriculum on appraisal procedures and assessment administration offered throughout the world, and under the guidance of the IAAO Education Committee.

To assist with changes due to the Coronavirus, IAAO is offering new online courses, including live online courses and self-study courses. More information is available under each segment. 

Local education coordinators determine when and where IAAO curriculum is offered. In addition, the local sponsoring agency handles all registration activities, including the collection of tuition and fees. The local coordinator's name and contact information are available on the Course Calendar.

IAAO provides program materials, which includes student reference manuals, solution pages, and final examinations.

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.
