Appraisal Qualifications Board AQB Announcement

BREAKING: AQB Adopts Changes to Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria

(Washington, DC) August 24, 2021 – The Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) today adopted a new edition of the Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria (Criteria). The Criteria set qualification standards for real property appraisers in the United States and provide continuing education guidelines for current appraisers to maintain their appraisal license.

“The pandemic forced everyone to be flexible,” said AQB Chair Mark Lewis. “And the AQB was no exception. We temporarily allowed education which was approved for in-person learning to be converted to online synchronous courses to respond to lockdowns and stay at home orders. Over time, the AQB saw a tremendous response from appraisers who were able to take advantage of this new educational opportunity. The AQB is responding to that feedback by making these temporary changes permanent.”
