The 15-Hour National USPAP Course focuses on the requirements for ethical behavior and competent performance by appraisers that are set forth in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). The course material emphasizes the role of the appraiser and the impartiality associated with this role. Special responsibilities of the appraiser with regard to impartiality are explored in detail. In addition to lectures, the course includes discussion problems that show how USPAP applies in situations that appraisers encounter in everyday practice. These examples address issues frequently experienced by appraisers as professionals in the appraisal of real property, personal property, and business or intangible assets, and in appraisal review. This course is designed to aid appraisers seeking competency in USPAP, in all areas of appraisal practice including those subject to state licensing or certification and continuing education requirements imposed by professional organizations, client groups, or employers.

A102 Basic Appraisal Procedures is an introductory course for those preparing for a career in valuation services. The course is the second in the curriculum sequence of qualifying education required by states for those individuals pursuing appraisal licensure and certification.
Students will learn the basic appraisal procedures with concentration on the appraisal process and an emphasis on rural properties and techniques. Topic themes run throughout the course to focus student learning on defining the appraisal problem, collecting and selecting data, analyzing the data using the three valuation approaches, reconciling the approaches and communicating with the client and intended user of the appraisal service. An integrated case study will guide the students through the appraisal process. Beginning with neighborhood analysis and concluding with the final value opinion, the students will appraise a rural residential property with multiple land uses.
The content is divided into five units: The Valuation Process, Area and Neighborhood Analysis, Highest and Best Use, The Approaches, and Reconciliation. Within each unit there is a set(s) of student learning goals, definitions and concepts, and examples. Each unit is completed with a set of classroom exercises and finally a review and quiz. The student will be well prepared for the exam if they follow the recommended timeline for completing the case study as each unit is presented.
Required Equipment & Textbooks: HP-12c calculator. You must be familiar with calculator operation when the course begins. Answers to problems in course material are shown using the HP-12c.
