7hr National USPAP Update Course

Instructor: Mark Smeltzer, SRA

This one-day update course, copyrighted by The Appraisal Foundation, focuses on recent changes to USPAP requirements for ethical behavior and competent performance by appraisers. The course, which clarifies several commonly misunderstood aspects of USPAP, will aid appraisers in all areas of appraisal practice seeking updated competency in USPAP, including those subject to state licensing or certification and continuing education requirements imposed by professional organizations, client groups, or employers.

NOTE: An appraiser must successfully complete the 7-hour USPAP Update Course every two years to meet the USPAP continuing education requirement.

The appraiser can take the 15-hour USPAP course, but it will only count for hours toward his or her state’s continuing education requirement; the 15-hour program will not meet the USPAP continuing education requirement.

Course price does not include a copy of the current USPAP edition, which is required for course credit. Attendees must bring their own copy of the USPAP edition to class.

Student materials include a DOWNLOADABLE version of the current USPAP, OR registrants may opt to purchase a hard copy to be mailed to them for an additional fee.  Attendees must bring their own copy to class or they will not receive credit.  Copies are available for purchase through The Appraisal Foundation.

Education Credits

Full attendance of this course: 7 hrs CE

Attendance Requirements

100% attendance is required for all Appraisal Institute education programs. This follows Appraiser Qualifications Board minimum criteria requirements. A “classroom hour” is defined as 50 minutes out of each 60 minute segment. A 10-minute break per hour is allowed and a student would still meet the 100% attendance requirement. Students should not be late or leave early; if they are late or leave early, they will not receive credit.

Cancellation Policy

  • Up to 15 days prior to program start date, $50 cancellation fee.
  • 2-14 days prior to program start date, $75 cancellation fee.
  • Less than 2 days prior to program start date, forfeit of payment unless a student replacement is provided.

NOTE: If you have a disability and require accommodation, please notify the Appraisal Institute’s Seattle Chapter in writing at least two weeks in advance and we will arrange for reasonable accommodations. We reserve the right to cancel, limit, or reschedule the course and change faculty assignments and facility locations at any time. Prospective students should confirm their registration before making any non-refundable airline reservations.
