  • Applicant must submit one (1) recommendation form with recent photo by July 27, 2018.

  • Your performance at the conference will be graded on the following components: your video presentation, a live presentation, an impromptu presentation and your participation and professionalism at the conference and on the webinars.  See schedule for more details.

  • Applicant must receive an invitation to teach from the national AI Education Committee after the IQC.

  • Those invited to become an AI instructor will receive options for auditing AI programs.  Invited participants must follow the regular audit policies as written, before instructing AI programs. 

Guidelines for Potential AI Instructors

  • The Appraisal Institute views your demeanor during the entire IQC, including the pre-webinars and the submitted video presentation. The IQC is your opportunity to prove that you have the skills and the interest to merit serving as a representative of the Appraisal Institute.
  • While the Education Committee intends to provide opportunities for Appraisal Institute instructors to improve their teaching skills, it is NOT the responsibility of the Education Committee to teach individuals how to be effective instructors.
  • Attendance at the IQC does not guarantee that an individual will be approved to become an Appraisal Institute instructor. Participants who demonstrate strong communication skills in a classroom situation and solid appraisal subject knowledge will be approved. Since Appraisal Institute courses require the instructor to motivate a class for one or more days, the instructor must be more than an effective public speaker. The Education Committee is looking for individuals with special skills.
  • Approval of instructors by the Appraisal Institute is not permanent. Instructor performance is continually monitored through student evaluations and interpreted in accordance with the instructor guidelines set by the Education Committee. Instructor approval for program offerings is based on past evaluations.
  • Successful completion of the IQC and the meeting of all requirements does not guarantee teaching assignments. It is the responsibility of the individual to negotiate and enter into teaching assignments with Appraisal Institute and its chapters.
