15-Hour National Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) Qualifying Course-October 17-18 2023
To It is impossible to replicate the rich learning experience of the classroom through a Online program and a computer screen. The Professional Career Center has been training New York Appraisers & Assessors in our classroom for over 25 years at the same Syracuse, New York location. The ability to ask questions and participate in classroom discussions can not be replicated through email or chat. Our instructors are experienced New York licensed Appraisers. They use their real life experiences (in New York Appraisal) to bring the curriculum alive for better understanding and a livelier presentation. Many online programs feature experienced instructors…in most cases, that experience wasn’t from practice in New York.

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 Professionals 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 2020-21 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 appraisers and the impartiality associated with this role. Specific responsibilities of the appraisers 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 14 hours (50 minutes/hour) of instruction in USPAP and a one-hour examination.
