Continuing Education for the 2021 Certification Renewal

The Board of Certified Real Estate Appraisers is following the recommended guidance put forth by The Appraisal Foundation in their March 2020 letter, which recommendations they have since extended through the end of 2021. Continuing education offerings that were originally designed to be presented in a traditional classroom setting may be offered remotely via distance education, without the delivery mechanism approval set forth in Section III.D.3 “Generic Education Criteria” of the Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria(Criteria), subject to the following:

  1. The educational offering under consideration is currently approved for traditional classroom presentation,
  2. The platform utilized for distance education is live and interactive,
  3. The instructor verifies photo identification of the students, and
  4. The instructor maintains an attendance roster, which includes verifying 100% classroom attendance by, for example, taking attendance at various established times during the course.
