The third class providing 15 clock hours toward 75 hours required for the Illinois Associate Appraiser license. This two-day course utilizes the National USPAP Course material developed by the Appraisal Foundation and covers basic rules for the competent performance of appraisals as well as ethical behavior in regard to real estate appraisal. The course is unique in that it is revised annually by The Appraisal Foundation. The course materials emphasize the roles of the appraiser and the impartiality associated with this role. The Appraisal Qualification Board (AQB) adopted new criteria (requirements) in February 2004 for obtaining a Certified Appraisal License. The new criteria (requirements) may mean that the course you are now taking may not meet the education requirements for licensure should you not become a licensed Certified Appraiser (Certified Residential or Certified General) by January 1, 2008. Candidates for licensure must have completed their application including the appraisal experience requirement and pass the appraisal test prior to January 1, 2008.
