Default Obtaining Appraisal Trainee License in NYS

Are there any places to take the required courses online? I'm searching, and NYS doesn't seem to allow it? Is that true? Is my only option to go to physical classes somewhere?

Why? With a total lack of trainee positions available, why a) do you even want to take courses, and b) why would you want to take the ones LEAST likely to teach you what you need to know, and least likely to get you hired somewhere? Just sayin'.

Not really sure...over the years they may have changed the laws...your best bet is to contact the Dept of State, Licensing Division and ask..

Welcome to the Forum.

a. IMO, nothing is better than a qualified LIVE instructor
b. IMO, nothing is better than interaction with classmates (depending on the course you may find yourself in groups of experienced Appraisers as well as other trainees).
c. should you not have researched the current depressed market conditions which have resulted in decreased demand for Appraisers, recommend you do so. Timing IS everything in life. You may be inquiring based on "experts" reporting the market has "bottomed" and "will be stabilizing". They may be correct, or maybe overly-optimistic (depending on their roles in the industry as participants or merely media "mouthpieces" for certain segments of the RE industry).
d. having said that:

some on the State Approved List have both on-line, some have only live courses

At this time with the current market conditions for appraisers, you are better off looking into another field. Almost ANY other field.

Is it bad in CA? Is it bad from the lack of transactions taking place or something else? Some one is getting the work, right? Do banks selling foreclosures pay less. What is the scoop?

There are over 12,000 appraisers in CA. The lack of work, the reduction of fees, having to deal with AMCs with all their BS and the difficulty finding a mentor make it a daunting task.

You are better off becoming a realtor and then trying for your appraisal license in the future. At least then you will have a decent network of real estate professionals to work with and canvass for business.
