Default Recertification for USPAP Instructors

I just finished the online recertification course for USPAP instructors. I was wondering if anyone else had taken it, and if so, what were your thoughts?

I have yet to do it...but, I'll be most interested in learning your impression of it.

It's available now??

At the Seattle ASB meeting, it was mentioned it would be available on Oct. 1.

Does the course contain a 'test' or is it just an overview of the '10-11 changes?

The course contains a review of policies, a review of USPAP changes, and a review of changes to the 7-hour and 15-hour courses. The recert course includes one feature that I think will spark some debate, but I don't want to mention it just yet. I want to see if others have the same observation without me mentioning it.

The whole system is new, so I was not totally surprised that I ran into a couple of technical glitches - nothing major. I have a comment or two that I intend to send to TAF, but overall I think the program should accomplish the goal.

i printed out the email instructions but haven't gone on-line yet...got way too many assignments to finish. Hope that isn't an excuse in the next 90 days.

Was really undecided if I was going to renew but then we lost one of our USPAP instructors to FHA last month leaving just me for Colorado Springs so I guess I will do one more cycle. Had 34 in my last 7 hour which was a pleasant surprise.

Question. Are we expected to finish in 1 sitting or can you stop at a certain point and come back later to finish? Like George and Mike, I simply don't have the time right now to go through the process. Maybe in a couple of weeks.

You do not have to finish in one session. I did the first module or two at the office and finished it out on my screened deck after I got home.

I think I recall seeing an estimate of four hours to complete the course. I think the time required will depend on how fast one reads, and, more importantly, how closely one has followed ASB activities over the past two years. A person who has followed the Exposure Drafts and Q&As very closely will probably take less time.
