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?

Whenever I have questions about state licensing, I call the state licensing folks. Anything of us would say would be personal thoughts and hearsay. Not much use in the real world. :P

Can appraising be similar to riding a bicycle as far as never forgetting how? Geez, I'm still trying to learn how the first time, but maybe once I learn I won't never forget it.

50% of his experience hours must have been earned within the last 5 years, so I'm assuming the other 50% can be from prior to that. He might be able to get by with only 1,000 hours, assuming the Ohio hours were USPAP compliant at the time he earned them. If he has a broker license he might be able to cut his requirements even further, but I'm thinking he's on the hook for at least 1,000 hours.

His best bet is to call the OREA and find out directly.

Usually these licensing boards have some latitude. I would recommend to someone there if there isn't a penalty or overdue fee he might be able to pay. I've seen it work in the past.
