MAI Advanced Education Equivalencies
In 2011, the revised Advanced Education courses were released and the corresponding old courses were retired. If the general Associate member had not completed any of the old education requirements by the date the course(s) retired, he or she is required to take the current equivalent Advanced Education course/exam(s).
Please see the chart below for details on the retired courses, and which courses replaced them.
General Appraiser Report Writing & Case Studies has been deemed equivalent to Report Writing and Valuation Analysis for the MAI Advanced Education requirements. The general Associate member must have taken and passed either Report Writing and Valuation Analysis or General Appraiser Report Writing & Case Studies to meet that report writing course requirement for the MAI. Report Writing and Valuation Analysis retired at the end of 2010. General Associate members who did not receive credit for Report Writing and Valuation Analysis by the end of 2010 will need to take and pass the Appraisal Institute course and exam for General Appraiser Report Writing & Case Studies.
*Note: General Associate members who passed the Appraisal Institute General Market Analysis and H&BU exam prior to June 1, 2011 will receive equivalency credit for the new Advanced Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use exam for their MAI advanced education requirements. After June 1, 2011, general Associate members who had not previously received equivalency credit will be required to pass the Advanced Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use exam instead. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (312) 335-4111 if you have questions.
Additionally, Quantitative Analysis will be a required part of the MAI Advanced Education for general Associate members who had joined after January 1, 2012.
