I was thinking about taking the class on the newly released URAR form by the Appraisal Institute. I was wondering if you have to be a member?

There are two separate fees. One for members. One for non-members.

The fee they have listed is $150. I am guessing that is for members.

Has anyone taken the class?

I will give them a call on Monday. I need to get started on my CE hours.

Not always. True, many of the local chapters will give their members a lower rate since the local members fund the chapter with their dues money and also volunteer their time to serve as officers and on committees. Some chapters and all nationally sponsored offerings (25 in May) charge a flat fee of $139, members and non-members alike.

Will, you asked:

Hardly, I'm still working on it. Just got the final forms the other day. Had to develop the seminar to the test forms and now I'm modifying it to take in the changes. I think Chuck Cather will be doing most of the Ohio venues. I'll be doing one up by Ann Arbor in June if you want to drive that far.

Rich,


The fee is $200. I am not sure if this is for members or nonmembers.

Do you think this class will be worth it?

I think you mentioned that you attended a Fannie Mae seminar. Are all the instructors attending this class?

B) Others are also doing the courses, nationwide. NAIFA and, the group I will be teaching for, FutureValue. I would check around re fees and select the one closest to me, and with the best fee, and no, I am not a principle in either NAIFA or FutureValue, just a working stiff appraiser who has been teaching real estate and appraisal courses since 1984 at all levels. It will sort of be like the pre course for FHA beginning in 1999. Educators will be coming out of the woodwork teaching the new forms. Personally I am attending a cinference and an all day presentation by Fannie Mae in preperation to teaching the course.

If you are looking for something for less, AI National is sponsoring one in Cincinatti on May 5th at $139

Yes, I do.

What I mentioned is that I was in several meetings with Fannie Mae as the new forms evolved. It gave me some really good insight into the new form. As far as other instructors, I'll be having a training session for the lead group of instructors before they go out and teach it. All of the lead instructors were involved in reviewing my seminar as it was being developed.

B) Will,

Yes, the group I will be teaching for will do courses in Ohio. As soon as I have the dates I will post them. I will make sure that there are courses in Ohio and I may be doing them. As far as I know the only instructor training, outside of what Rich is doing for the AI, is a 1 day invitation only instructor training session in New Orleans on May 25, 2005 taught by Fannie Mae. Also, as soon as I know the fee for the course I will post it here.
