The General Demonstration Report—Capstone Program is a new option Candidates for Designation may choose to complete their demonstration of knowledge requirement for their MAI designation. Like the traditional requirement, the same skills and knowledge base are required to produce a complete demonstration appraisal report. However, this program was designed to offer an option that accelerates the completion of the report. Instead of selecting and compiling data on a property, participants are provided with a subject property and data to analyze and then write the report in a limited time span of approximately two months. Participants must attend two webinars and a 7-day classroom session where facilitators will be on hand to answer questions and offer guidance. On day 7 at noon, the full report is submitted for grading.
The program is designed to be completed in approximately two months; therefore, participants must realize they will need to commit a considerable amount of that time on analysis and writing tasks PRIOR to the classroom setting. One pre-class writing assignment (fundamental market analysis) is required before the 2nd Webinar. It is important that participants understand they will need to spend a minimum of 150-200 hours to successfully complete this program. And during the 7-day classroom session, participants should expect to work on their reports after the 7-hour days spent in the classroom. 10-12 hours a day that week will not be unusual.
