The Phoenix Chapter will host 7 hour in ZOOM class Thursday April 25th, 2024 on USPAP, (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice), from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm, pacific standard time.  The class will be taught by Brian J. Flynn, MAI, AI-GRS.  Brian Ted has over 30 years of experience, and has specialized in conservation easements, golf course, subdivisions, marinas, and other unique properties.  In addition he has twenty years of review appraisal experience, and teaches both introduction and advanced appraisal courses.  

This required 7-hour continuing education course, copyrighted by The Appraisal Foundation, focuses on USPAP requirements for ethical behavior and competent performance by appraisers. The first part of the course addresses the changes to USPAP, which are effective January 1, 2024, and the second focuses on cases studies that challenge you how to apply USPAP to situations you encounter in your daily practice. The course will help you gain competency in USPAP, and it will help those subject to state licensing or certification and continuing education requirements imposed by professional organizations, client groups, or employers gain competency as well.

In the past, the Advisory Opinions and Frequently Asked Questions, which were required materials for the course, were bundled with the USPAP publication. Now they are contained in a separate publication, USPAP Guidance and Reference Manual. This manual provides examples showing the applicability of standards in specific situations and offers advice from the ASB for resolving appraisal issues and problems. It also contains the Reference Index which is a highly useful tool that helps appraisers quickly find answers to USPAP-related questions. This new Guidance and Reference Manual is included with your course handbook. Please note, however, that USPAP 2024, which includes Standards 1-10 and is required for the course, must be purchased separately.

REGISTER NOW, the class is limited to 40 people.
