Oct 02 – Oct 02 Minnesota Supervisor-Trainee Appraiser Live Online Class (6-Credit Hours) Online Day

Appropriately preparing trainee appraisers is imperative for ensuring the integrity and quality of the industry is upheld.

The recent rebound of the real estate market has been a welcome sight for the appraisal profession. It is the crucial responsibility of supervisory appraisers to train, develop, and mentor these new professionals. This mentor relationship will produce competent, ethical appraisers to enhance public trust. The 2015 AQB Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria requires that both supervisory and trainee appraisers be educated regarding the expectations for these roles.

This course meets the national, AQB-required content and outline for supervisory and trainee appraisers. Minnesota has adopted criteria that exceed the minimum AQB requirements, and this course addresses the specific criteria that have been adopted by Minnesota with regard to supervisory appraisers and trainee appraisers. Discussions revolve around the requirements, expectations, and responsibilities of both types of appraisers in order for trainees to gain experience credit. A short history of the profession is followed by the structure of the entities that oversee appraisers, including The Appraisal Foundation, The Appraisal Subcommittee, and state regulatory bodies.

Students will understand the requirements for licensing levels and the use of trainees for Fannie Mae, FHA, and lender assignments. Also addressed are the USPAP requirements that apply to assignments involving more than one appraiser.

This course has been approved by the Minnesota Commissioner of Commerce for 6 hours of appraisal continuing education.

Topics Include:

  • The AQB and its role in the profession
  • 2015 AQB Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria
  • Minnesota-specific trainee license requirements
  • Minnesota-specific supervisory appraiser requirements
  • Minnesota-specific requirements that exceed AQB minimums
  • Trainee and supervisory appraiser expectations
  • Significant assistance—what it is and how to report it

This course is intended for continuing education credit. If you are enrolling for pre-licensing instead, visit our trainee page.

Appraisal forms ask for architectural design of the subject and comparable properties. Many multiple listing services (MLS) have a field for architectural style as well. Contemporary and traditional are often used in MLS listings and appraisal reports. FNMA does not allow descriptors like average, two stories, or typical, and they modified these sections in the UAD format in 2013. Both appraisers and real estate agents struggle with the design of newer homes and reviewer revisions to the designs used in their reports. You will be provided with descriptions, pictures, and floor plans that will aid in identification of the architectural design of the houses in neighborhoods you work in regularly.

This course has been approved by the Minnesota Commissioner of Commerce for 3.75 hours of appraisal continuing education.

Topics include:

  • Identifying designs by year of construction, roof types, exterior materials
  • Fenestration and ornamentation of historic and newer house designs
  • Specific features of architectural designs
  • Resources to aid in identifying architecture
