ASAA offers a Professional Appraisal Course in a continuing effort to provide its members (and non-members) with services that will improve their performance and enable them to better serve their clients. ASAA's education courses are designed to ensure that all appraisers, regardless of discipline, receive the very best instruction and most useful information to help them succeed in business.


Important changes have taken place within the personal property appraisal industry. Of these changes, the AQB Personal Property Appraiser Minimum Qualification Criteria are the most important and will have the greatest impact on our industry. Developed by the Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB), as authorized by Congress, these criteria were adopted by the Appraisal Foundation in Washington, D.C.


The AQB, which establishes minimum standards for education and experience for both real estate and personal property appraisers nationwide, developed these requirements to insure that personal property appraisers have adequate skills and experience in their field. Personal property appraisers who meet the AQB Qualification Criteria will have demonstrated that they have sufficient appraisal expertise, are educated regarding the principles used in establishing personal property values, and are able to write appraisal reports that meet the industry standards stated in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. (USPAP).


The AQB Qualification Criteria are the industry standards that professional businesses such as banks, insurance companies, CPAs, attorneys and governmental agencies require appraisers to meet in order to do business with them. The bottom line is that appraisers need to meet the AQB Qualification Criteria in order to do business with top-notch professionals.


If you currently are in, or desire to enter, the personal property appraisal business, the ASAA Course was designed with you in mind. The course will provide you with the ability to develop and write an appraisal that meets the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice, and will give you a good start toward meeting the AQB Qualification Criteria developed specifically for personal property appraisers.
