The Development Process

For more than 85 years, the Appraisal Institute Education department has been developing education to meet the training and professional development needs of real estate appraisers. While some development steps have changed over the years, the tradition of selecting practicing appraisers to develop peer-reviewed education has not.

  • Submitted proposals are reviewed and discussed by the Education Committee.
  • A development team made up of a developer and reviewers who have extensive knowledge and expertise in the topic is selected. Contracts are issued.
  • At least three drafts (made up of several components, frequently including a student handbook, exam, instructor notes, and PowerPoint presentation) are developed by the developer; each one is thoroughly reviewed by the reviewers on the team.
  • Once the content is completed, development moves into production. Staff edits for consistency and organization. Materials are professionally designed.
  • Sign-off drafts are reviewed by the development team for final comment.
  • All programs are monitored. Adjustments and updates are made as needed.
