Valuation of Sustainable Buildings Professional Development Program
To help appraisers hone their skills, the Appraisal Institute offers professional development programs to real estate appraisers on cutting-edge, problematic, or advanced-level topics. Professional development programs cover a body of knowledge in a specialty, allowing participants to obtain knowledge about a property type or specialty area.
The Valuation of Sustainable Buildings Professional Development Program is a must for any appraiser valuing green buildings.
This Program consists of the following courses:
Participants in any of the above courses also have access to AI Green Resources – one convenient webpage that allows you to tap a variety of green resources. Topics are expanded regularly and include legislation, national and state government sites and programs, databases, design, and solar energy. Many of these resources can also help appraisers when completing the Residential Green and Energy Efficient Addendum.
This free benefit is available only to class participants. Appraisal Institute Designated members receive indefinite access; all other class participants are granted two-year admittance. The link to this helpful resource is provided with the course materials.
The Green Resources Webpage will be updated regularly; we encourage course participants to check it frequently for new links and submit their own!
The Appraisal Institute publishes AI Report® forms for use by appraisers where the appraiser deems use of the form appropriate. Depending on the assignment, the appraiser may need to provide additional data, analysis and work product not called for in the forms. The Appraisal Institute plays no role in completing the form and disclaims any responsibility for the data analysis or any other work product provided by the individual appraiser(s).
