    Business Practices and Ethics

    This important course provides information about standards and ethics requirements for valuers in general and, more specifically, for valuers who belong to the Appraisal Institute. Through discussion questions and examples, you’ll identify behavior and actions that illustrate violations of the Code of Professional Ethics, and you’ll learn how referrals can be made. You’ll get an introduction to the Appraisal Institute Guide Notes to the Standards of Professional Practice and see how the Guide Notes can be used to resolve everyday appraisal practice problems. Finally, you’ll learn about common errors in appraisal reports and review reports, and they respond to questions about challenges that arise in appraisal practice such as requests for updates and requests to change or add intended users.
