Appraiser Qualification Criteria:
Trainee Applicants: Before beginning any of your appraisal education courses, please contact the Real Estate Appraiser Board and request a Trainee packet. The telephone number for the administrative office of the Board is (405) 521-6636. You may also e-mail your request to our office at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you e-mail, or leave the request on our voicemail, please include your name and mailing address.
Continuing Education Requirements: All appraisers, including Trainees, are required to take 42 hours of continuing education every three years. The continuing education cycle is different for each appraiser and coincides with the dates in which your paper license is valid.
21 hours of the required 42 MUST be taken live. The remainder may be taken on line should you choose to do so. You MAY NOT take all 42 hours of continuing education on line.
Each appraiser is responsible for the submission of his or her course completion certificates. Do not rely on your education provider to turn in these in to our office. You may e-mail your course completion certificate to email@example.com, fax to (405) 522-6909 or hard copy mail to Five Corporate Plaza, Suite 100, 3625 N.W. 56th Street, Oklahoma City, OK 73112.
7-Hour USPAP Update: Each appraiser is required to take the 7-Hour USPAP update on a two-year cycle. In Oklahoma it is an odd-year, even year, cycle. This requirement is unrelated to your three-year continuing education requirement, although you will receive continuing education credit for the USPAP update and it will count towards your 42 hour total. As an example, the most recent USPAP update offered pertained to the 2014-2015 USPAP. Oklahoma appraisers were required to take this course between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2014. This course was to be taken during this two-year time frame, regardless of when you took the prior version. For instance, if you took the prior USPAP update in June of 2011 and then took the 2014-2015 USPAP in December, 2013, you met the requirements for both cycles. The course does not have to be taken within two years of your previous course. It simply needs to be timely taken within each two-year cycle.
The course numbering system is as follows:
600-level courses are approved for qualifying education. All qualifying education courses serve “double duty” as you will also receive continuing education credit for the course so long as it has been successfully completed.
700-level courses are approved for in-class continuing education.
900-level courses are approved for on-line or distance continuing education.
The 15-hour National USPAP will be course number 600.
The in-class 7-hour National USPAP Update will be course number 700.
The on-line 7-hour National USPAP Update will be course number 900.
If you have questions about a course’s approval, you should contact the Board.
