About AI Review Designations
The Appraisal Institute’s new review designation program took effect Jan. 1, 2014. The first new Appraisal Institute designations in more than 20 years are: AI-GRS and AI-RRS.
The Appraisal Institute established a professional appraisal review designations program in response to the growing and critically important role that appraisal review plays in risk management and mitigation for many clients/users of appraisal services. The new designation program is aimed at providing professional reviewers with the knowledge and skills needed to satisfy issues related to due diligence and risk management often requested by their employers and clients.
Appraisal Institute Designated members can begin to fulfill the requirements for the review designations now. Individuals who are not AI designated can become candidates within the review designation program and embark on a path to designation. (Please note: some of the requirements these individuals must fulfill have yet to be made available.)
AI will offer four new courses, which constitute the core education to the review designation program.
Review Theory—Residential and Review Theory—General have been released to chapters for offerings.
Review Case Studies—General, will premiere July 14-18, 2014 and will be released to chapters for offerings in October 2014. Review Case Studies—Residential, will premiere October 16-17, 2014 and will be released to chapters for offerings in January 2015.
