USPAP REQUIREMENTS: (scroll for USPAP sources)
THE APPRAISAL FOUNDATIONTHE UNIFORM STANDARDS OF PROFESSIONAL APPRAISAL PRACTICE
Established by The Appraisal Foundation*, the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) set forth the currently recognized national standards for appraisals of personal property, real property, and business valuations. USPAP clearly describes what appraisers must do to properly conduct and document an appraisal. It identifies the standards that are accepted in the marketplace and by which an appraiser is judged. It identifies the requirements of governmental agencies, the courts, attorneys, banks, and insurance companies for acceptable appraisals.
ANA requires its appraising members to demonstrate proficiency and knowledge of USPAP by taking the 15-hour course and passing the exam prepared by The Appraisal Foundation. The class examines examples of USPAP documents and model appraisals. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a Certificate of Proficiency. 7-hour updates, required every two years, maintain the validity of the Certificate.
ANA USPAP REQUIREMENTS (sources follow:)Dear ANA Members:
This message contains information on USPAP requirements. Some new sources have been added to help you fulfill the requirements for USPAP updates.
ANA Board of Directors
ANA USPAP REQUIREMENTSMembers taking USPAP for the first time will take the 15 hour class and exam.
ANA accepts USPAP renewals in any of two ways after you have past the exam once:
Attend the 15 hour lecture every 5 years (almost all 15 courses are with an exam you must inquire), or
Attend the 7 hour update without taking the exam every 2 years.
You should note that USPAP is a STANDARDS PROGRAM and can be given by real estate as well as personal property providers. However, these courses contain a great deal of real estate standards, but DO meet the required standards for USPAP.
