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

The cost of the 1-day course is $125 per person if paid by check, $129 if paid online, and includes a student manual, coffee breaks and snacks.

Seating is limited, so please register early for the course, which meets the USPAP continuing education requirements for most appraisers, including the ASA requirement of one 7-hour USPAP update course every five years for accredited (AM, ASA, FASA) appraisers.
