If you’re interested in beginning your career as a Minnesota real estate appraiser, your first step is to complete a series of Trainee Real Property Appraiser courses from a state-approved education provider. Brightwood has the individual courses and complete package solutions you need to meet Minnesota’s education requirement and prepare for success on exam day. Once you complete the classes and pass the exam, you will be licensed as a Trainee Real Property Appraiser. Essentially, this means you will be permitted to perform appraisals under the watch of a supervising Certified Appraiser. In order to upgrade to Level 2 and remove your trainee status, you will need to complete 2,000 hours of appraisal work under your supervisor in no fewer than 12 months. The goal of this trainee period is to give you real-world experience in appraisal, while you have the resources of an appraisal mentor at your disposal to answer questions and provide support.
When you have completed the required hours of supervision, you are ready to upgrade your license to the level of Licensed Residential Real Property Appraiser.
