Course Description

In a continuing effort to provide its members and non-members with an educational advantage that will increase their knowledge and enable them to serve their clients; the NEAA is offering its first educational seminar for professional appraisal education. Our education course is designed to ensure that all our members receive the instruction and information to help them succeed in their appraisal practice.

The course will include the criteria developed by the Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB), as authorized by Congress, these new criteria were recently adopted by the AQB which establishes minimum standards for education and experience for real and personal property appraisers nationally.

The AQB developed these new requirements to insure that personal property appraisers have adequate skills and experience in their field. Personal property appraisers who meet the AQB Qualification Criteria will have demonstrated that they have sufficient appraisal expertise, are educated regarding the principles used in establishing personal property values, and are able to write appraisal reports that meet the industry standards stated in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. (USPAP).

These new AQB Qualification Criteria are the industry standards that professional businesses such as banks, insurance companies, CPAs, attorneys and governmental agencies require appraisers to meet in order to do business with them. The bottom line is appraisers need to meet the AQB Qualification Criteria in order write appraisal reports.

If you currently are in, or desire to enter, the personal property appraisal profession, the NEAA’s Seminar was designed for you The seminar will provide you with the ability to develop and write an appraisal that meets the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice, and will give you a good start toward meeting the new AQB Qualification Criteria developed specifically for personal property appraisers. Key elements of New England Appraisers Association’s mentoring program for new appraisers will encourage you and offer you opportunities to grow your appraisal practice. Instruction includes basic knowledge of appraisal terms and application, appraisal construction, review, and networking. Bring your laptop–we will have fun, learn a lot, make friends,network and develop professional associations.
