ASFMRA Online Education

ASFMRA is working on a variety of fronts on the development of online education. Some are at the point of implementation others are still in the planning stage. They include:

  • Qualifying education for those seeking a Certified General Appraisal License
  • Webinars
  • Continuing education

ASFMRA Webinars

ASFMRA uses the webinar technology to deliver information in a live format on current topics of interest. These are short (1-1.5 hour long) presentations on a subject of immediate interest to our membership, such as information on legislation or regulatory developments or in some cases very short training sessions on something like the features of a software program like Excel.

ASFMRA also uses this technology to offer the ASFMRA Best In Business Ethics class. Currently, no other courses are offered by ASFMRA using this technology because many state regulatory agencies do not allow the approval of webinars for CE credit.
