When you’re ready to begin your Colorado appraisal career, you’ll first need to complete the required Beginning Appraiser education from a state-approved education provider. Brightwood College, powered by Kaplan Appraisal Education, gives you options. Either enroll in a complete course package (at a discounted price) that includes every class you need to meet Colorado’s requirement, or enroll in classes individually. Either way, Brightwood has all of the appraisal education you will need to meet your requirement. Your courses are offered by Brightwood College | San Antonio (Ingram).
After you have met Colorado’s education requirement you will be known as a Beginning Appraiser. Before upgrading to Licensed Appraiser, you must complete 2,000 hours of supervised appraisal work, during a minimum period of one year. As a Beginning Appraiser, you will learn the ins and outs of the appraisal business, and have access to a Certified Appraiser as a mentor to answer questions.
When you have completed the appraisal experience requirement, you will be qualified to upgrade your license to Colorado Licensed Appraiser.
If you are prepared to upgrade your Colorado appraisal license, you can enroll in your Licensed Appraiser courses with Brightwood. When you become a Licensed Appraiser, you will have the freedom and independence to elevate your career and reputation. Our Colorado appraisal school provides course packages and individual classes to help you meet the state’s education requirements and pass the Licensed Appraiser exam.

Certified…it has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? There’s a certain level of trust that the public places in people who are certified. Employers and clients alike identify and value the commitment it takes to become certified. That, in turn, leads to a higher demand for your services. When you earn your Certified Appraiser license, you will be licensed to appraise residential properties, with no regard to value. We offer the complete course packages and individual courses you need to meet Colorado’s Level 3 appraisal licensure education requirements.
Be aware, the qualification requirements for some appraisal licensing levels changed 2015. If you would like more information, visit our AQB Changes page.
