If you’re prepared to start your New Mexico appraisal career, the first milestone on your journey is passing the Trainee classes from a state-approved education provider. Kaplan Real Estate Education offers licensing packages that include all the courses it takes to meet the New Mexico education requirements, and prime you for success on the exam. It’s your choice—enroll in each class individually, or save money and enroll in a complete course package that includes all of the classes you will need.
When you have met all the education requirements and passed the exam, you will receive your trainee registration under the supervision of a Certified Real Estate Appraiser. Before you can upgrade to Licensed Residential Appraiser, you need to complete 1,000 hours in no fewer than six months. Throughout the apprentice period of your career, you will get hands-on experience in the day-to-day work of a professional appraiser. And when you have questions, you will have access to a supervising mentor who can answer them.
Once you have completed your required hours of experience as a trainee and additional education, you will be ready to upgrade from trainee to Licensed Residential Appraiser.
When you’re ready to upgrade your New Mexico trainee license, it’s time to enroll in your New Mexico Licensed Residential Appraiser classes with Kaplan. As a Licensed Residential Appraiser, you will enjoy greater independence and freedom to take your career to new heights. Kaplan's New Mexico appraisal school offers individual courses and class packages to help you meet the state’s education requirements and pass the Level 2 exam.
