    2020-2021 15-Hour Equivalent USPAP Course

    The Appraisal Institute 2020-2021 15-Hour Equivalent USPAP Course (effective January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2023) covers the fundamentals of ethical behavior and competent performance expected of professional appraisers. Designed to comply with requirements for state licensed/certified appraisers, the course highlights the role of the appraiser and the impartiality necessary while acting in that role. Participants will learn how the requirements of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) affect their assignments within the appraisal profession.

    As you proceed through the course, you will discover that impartiality is an integral part of what defines an appraiser. The course emphasizes the appraiser’s role and how impartiality is associated with that role under various assignments—the very types of assignments appraisers perform in everyday practice. The course emphasizes the practical application of USPAP—and that will be evident in every module.

    This course is an introduction to USPAP, and therefore many in the class will focus on assignments that involve real property appraisal or appraisal review. However, USPAP extends to assignments involving personal property and business or intangible assets. A clear understanding of USPAP fosters both ethical behavior and competent practice in all appraisal disciplines.
    The course consists of 11 modules, and follows the required topical content established by the Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) of The Appraisal Foundation (TAF). Quizzes are presented at specific points within each module to test your mastery of USPAP concepts. The course also features a video clip case study application in nearly all 11 modules.

    Note. State licensed and certified course participants who wish to complete the 15-hour National USPAP Course (effective January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2023) can do so, but it will only count for state CE (elective) credit and will not meet the national USPAP requirement for state licensing retention. Course participants who are required to complete the 15-hour National USPAP Course due to current trainee licensing rules and regulations, will receive the QE credit for their successful completion of this pre-qualification course.
