The purpose of the Appraisal Institute Experience Requirements is to determine if a Candidate for Designations work meets the requirements specified in applicable AI Regulations, Policies, and Procedures, including Significant Professional Responsibility, Reasonable Relationship of Hours, and the Appraisal Institute Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (or other relevant criteria).
Candidates should be open to listening to and exchanging information with the Experience Screener. The Experience Requirement and interview is a learning process, whether or not your credit is approved. You likely will come away with new ideas for reporting and possibly a better understanding of theory and techniques.
Reports must be submitted in their entirety, which means that the report is to be submitted just as it was sent to the client. Reports are not to be edited or altered in any way for the experience process.
All work for which experience is claimed must have been performed for a business purpose (mock experience and mock review experience is ineligible).
The Appraisal Institute Certification Standard requires Candidates and Designated members to include certain certification statements in addition to those required by USPAP, IVS, or applicable standards. Candidates and Designated members are required to use the exact wording for all of statements required by the Certification Standard.
