Renew Your Appraiser Trainee
As an Appraiser Trainee, you must renew your authorization every two years. A renewal notice will be sent out about 90 days before your expiration date. You may renew your authorization up to six months after the expiration date.
What do I have to do to renew my Appraiser Trainee approval?
- Complete 28 hours of approved Appraiser Continuing Education (ACE) courses for each two year renewal. The 28 hours must include an approved 7 hours National USPAP Update course and must be completed during the two year period before the expiration date.
- In addition to the 28 hours of ACE, you must complete an approved Appraiser Trainee/Supervisory Appraiser Course within 4 years of the current license expiration date.
- Courses may not be repeated for credit within a two year period. Courses do not carry forward to future renewals.
If you renew the license after the expiration date you must also submit the Addition of Appraiser Trainee Supervision form and the required fee to re-establish supervision. The certified supervisory appraiser must complete the approved 4 hour Appraiser Trainee/Supervisory Appraiser Course. The course must be reflected in the certified supervisory appraiser's electronic license record before an authorization can be issued.
If you have not submitted your fingerprints for TALCB or TREC with a previous renewal or application, you must be fingerprinted for a criminal background check.
