I have a friend who was an appraiser in California for about 15 years, from 1975 to 1990. (Before licensing) Then he moved to Ohio and got certified in Ohio, but let that license expire about 7 years ago. Now he wants to get back in the appraisal business here in California. I told him since you haven’t had a license is 7 years; you will have to start as a trainee and get the required hours to get licenced I was told 5 years in the maximum that you can go back for hours. He tells me that he can get his license back without being a trainee…… Is this possible?
