Assessor Appraiser Training

The requirements to become a fully qualified appraiser or assessor are complex and vary by state and, sometimes, by the value or type of property. In general, most appraisers of residential real property must have at least an associateís degree, while appraisers of commercial real property must have at least a bachelorís degree. In some localities, appraisers may qualify with a high school diploma. Employers generally require these candidates to take basic appraisal courses, complete on-the-job training through an apprenticeship, and work enough hours to meet the requirements for appraisal licenses or certificates. In addition, both appraisers and assessors must be licensed or certified, but requirements vary by state. Check with your stateís licensing board for specific requirements.

Although requirements vary by state, appraisers of residential real property usually must have at least an associate's degree, and appraisers of commercial property usually must have at least a bachelor's degree. In practice, however, most have a bachelor's degree. Courses in subjects such as economics, finance, mathematics, computer science, English, and business or real estate law can be very useful for prospective appraisers and assessors.

For assessors, most states set education and experience requirements that an assessor must meet to practice. A few states have no statewide requirements; instead, each locality sets the standards. In some localities, candidates may qualify with a high school diploma. Employers generally require these candidates to take basic appraisal courses, complete on-the-job training through an apprenticeship, and work enough hours to meet the requirements for appraisal licenses or certificates.
