Wonderful classes. Great Service. Definite repeat. Residential inspection class was great.

I like them. I know some here abhor them. They are the McDonald's of CE.
i agree, and following your thought line the property inspection class is the equivalent of a 4 piece chicken mcnugget - child's play. i took it 2 or 3 years ago thinking it would give me some insights and the class was a joke. i suppose it could be useful to someone who has no concept of how to inspect a house let alone be an appraiser.

negative thoughts do not derail my fantastic experience from McKissock. :)

They go with the dictionary definition of 'independent'. The so called USPAP experts around here should take a class and learn the correct version of the definition of an appraiser.

Tres,
The Appraisal Foundation's virtual reality course is just around the corner to teach you how to do home inspections.

I used McKissock for many years. Twice found they were peddling incorrect info. I argued a revision request with info I had just read on McKissock and sent it to the AMC. I was proven wrong. Called McKissock re: them teaching incorrect material and the response was sometimes our info is not up to date. I no longer use them.

can't be any more of a waste of time than the mckissock course was. i honestly felt like i was ripped off and wondered how many other appraisers had been scammed in the same way. it made the basic appraisal 101 class look like a graduate level course.

now we see at least one thinks it is a valid, worth-while course. imagine that.

Never had a problem with McKissock in all the years I've been taking their classes, both on-line and classroom. I know a few of their instructors personally and find them to be very good. Looks like appraisers not only hate AMCs but also CE. Where do all you McKissock haters go for your CE?
