Does anyone here have recent experience using Total as a trainee? What is the correct way to upload and apply your signature to reports as a trainee? When I import my signature, I'm prompted to choose between "Licensed" and "Certified". Neither is correct, but I'm forced to choose one or I cant upload the signature. I've asked a la mode support, but I didn't get much help.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

In NC a trainee is a licensed trainee. What about your area?

You don't need to sign to get credit.

Use the "Appraisal Compliance Addendum" to disclose your contribution to the report.

You dont need to sign the appraisals, in todays world, it may cause problems if you do sign.

Don't you have to sign the appraisal if you go alone?

I'm in NC too, and our rule is after 50 completed appraisals with supervision, you can appraise a house without physical supervision as long as it's within 50 miles of your office. I have been signing those appraisals for clients who will accept my work without physical supervision on the left with my supervisor on the right. Should I not be doing that?

Anyway, OP, you're a licensed trainee in NC, so you pick licensed in Total. We have a T in front of the rest of our license number, so it's pretty obvious to anyone reading it you're a trainee.

Your state makes your rules.

If it is legal, then you can do it.
