    Expand Your Skill Set

    Are you ready to expand your skill set and explore cutting-edge topics?

    The Appraisal Institute’s extensive body of industry knowledge has allowed us to create professional development programs that cover advanced and problematic topics.

    Our programs are developed and taught by practicing appraisers with years of experience in these areas. The courses and exams in each program help you gain a comprehensive understanding of the property type or specialty area.

    Maximize your current skills, learn new strategies to expand your business, network with other appraisers with similar experience or interests, and distinguish yourself from your peers.

    Once you’ve completed the program, you’ll be added to the program’s registry – a great way to connect with potential clients and employers who are looking for professionals with competency in that area.
