Attached is the letter the American Guild of Appraisers (yes the Appraiser's Union) sent to the AQB regarding college degrees, experience credits, moving your business across state lines.

I think this is great that they are live streaming. It is not really logical that appraisers, who are not typically wealthy, have the wherewithal to travel a day and back for a 3-hour meeting. The move towards using technology for something this important is great. Signed up and on my calendar. Wish I could go in person, but unless a meeting is held within a couple hour drive it is too cumbersome and costly for me personally at this time (could change).

Cut the CE requirement in half. 15 hrs is more than enough.

pretty sure those are state specific. in ohio we need 14 every year.
They are set at the state level, but the minimum is set by the AQB. A state could require more than the AQB, but not less.

The suggestion to go to 15 hours every two years would require (1) AQB changing the criteria, followed by (2) states changing their laws.

Even if the AQB dropped the CE requirement to no hours, a state could still require it. If the AQB adopted 15 hour every two years, that would not automatically mean a reduction in any state.

If you are a licensed appraiser in Ohio , you need 14 hours.

I'd be happy if they cut it from 14 to 12 or 10 hours with classes being 6 or 5 hours long. 7 hours is a long day and most instructors tend to drag it out unnecessarily when they run out of material.

Just in the past month I have taken a 3 hour class, a 4 hour class and a 5 hour class. There is no rule that one has to sign up for 7 hour classes.

As for the yearly requirement, I personally don't care if they reduce it or not. I typically have two or three times the number of hours I am required to have. I like taking classes. I like learning things, and I also just like seeing what various providers offer with regard to both quality and variety.

28 hrs/2yrs appraising
Year-long, monthly next level certification class & 20hrs/year assessing
So that's like 70hrs every 2 years.
Good thing they generally don't count credit for each other...would be like cheating.:cautious:
Hard to find classes I haven't taken already by this point.
