Course Description
This is the 15-Hour National Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) Course of The Appraisal Foundation. The 15-Hour National USPAP Course focuses on the requirements for ethical behavior and competent performance by appraisers that are set forth in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). This course is unique in that it is developed by The Appraisal Foundation and is revised on a periodic basis to stay current with the latest edition of USPAP.

Each student must have a copy of the 2018-19 USPAP, USPAP Advisory Opinions, USPAP Frequently Asked Questions, and Index which provide the framework for the course and is referred to throughout the course.

The course material emphasizes the role of the appraiser and the impartiality associated with this role. Specific responsibilities of the appraiser with regard to impartiality are explored in detail.

In addition to lectures, the course includes illustrations that show how USPAP applies in situations that appraisers encounter in everyday practice. These examples address issues frequently experienced by appraisers as professionals in the appraisal of real property, personal property, and business or intangible assets, and in appraisal review.

This course is designed to aid appraisers seeking competency in USPAP, in all areas of appraisal practice including those subject to state licensing or certification and continuing education requirements imposed by professional organizations, client groups, or employers.

USPAP has been endorsed and adopted by major appraisal organizations in the United States. As required by federal law, USPAP must be used by states in their real estate appraiser certification programs.

This course provides at least 15 hours (50 minutes/hour) of instruction in USPAP that allows for a one-hour exam period within the 15-hour time frame.
