Attendance: 100% attendance is required for all Appraisal Institute education programs. This follows Appraiser Qualifications Board minimum criteria requirements. A “classroom hour” is defined as 50 minutes out of each 60-minute segment. A 10-minute break per hour is allowed and a student would still meet the 100% attendance requirement. Students should not be late or leave if they are late or leave early, they will not receive credit. Enrollment is on a first come, first serve basis.
AI Continuing Education Credit: This course is one of the programs that is approved for 1.25 hours of Appraisal Institute CE credit. Practicing designated members, candidates and practicing affiliates will recieve the 1.25 hours credit for every hour of an AI course or seminar that is on the approved list of classes.
Florida Students: Florida law requires students receive a grade of 75% or higher on any classroom exam administered by education providers. The Appraisal Institute requires students to achieve 70% or higher to receive exam credit. Therefore, if any student who wishes to receive pre-licensure credit from Florida receives between 70-74%, he/she will receive a completion certificate from the Appraisal Institute that will clearly indicate that they will receive classroom and exam credit for the Appraisal Institute only. In turn, if a student receives between 70-74%, they will not get exam credit from the state of Florida (but will only receive classroom credit from Florida). If a student receives 75% or higher, they will receive both Appraisal Institute and state of Florida credit for the classroom and exam hours. If you have any questions regarding this law, please visit the Florida website at: http://www.state.fl.us/dbpr/re/freab_welcome.shtml
