This course is designed to fulfill the requirements for licensed and certified
appraisers who must complete a 7-hour USPAP update course every two years.
Students will gain understanding regarding why, when and how changes are made to USPAP. The rationale and implementation of new regulations will be reinforced through case studies, illustrations and poll questions.
Each student is provided a digital copy of the 2020 – 2023 USPAP publication
including Advisory Opinions, the Index, and the USPAP FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) as well as the new USPAP Reference Manual.
The course will present and explain how to use the new Reference Manual to assist appraisers with locating answers to questions in the USPAP Publication. The course includes case studies outlining some common issues appraisers may encounter in everyday appraisal practice.
Some of the course discussions will be presented as polls in order to gauge how your thoughts compare with your colleagues across America.
Illustrations and case study reviews will be presented with challenge questions designed to prompt participants to research, interpret, and apply USPAP.
