You may be aware of the conflicting information regarding CE hours & USPAP posted on the IBOL web page. On the web page it seems clear they want 15 hours + USPAP, but they clarified that during the August meeting to say the USPAP class counts toward the 15 hours. I've referenced the the relevant sections below.


On the board web page, clicking the link "License Renewal Process", subsection Continuing Education, it says:

"A total of 15 hours of continuing education must be obtained and documented each year. *In addition,* each licensee must complete a 7 hour USPAP update course once every two years from the previous license renewal." (my bold)

Further down the same page, under section "Continuing Education Audits", it says:

"You are asked on the renewal form if you have completed a minimum of 15 hours of continuing education during the previous 12 months, *and* a 7 hour USPAP Update course within the previous 24 months." (my bold)

Based on this, it seems clear that we need a minimum of 15 CE one year and 22 hours every other year with USPAP update.

However, in the meeting minutes of August 28-29, 2007, under Continuing Education, it states:

"Each licensee is required to obtain fifteen hours of continuing education every 12 months prior to license renewal. License renewal is the date the license is renewed, not the expiration date. *This includes* the requirement to attend a Board approved seven hour USPAP Update course once every two years. *The Board noted that an Appraiser may take the 7 hour USPAP Update course each year and count it towards their 15 hour continuing education requirement."*

Slow down. Your first sentence says they want 15 hours of USPAP. Then the rest of your post refers to 15 hours of CE.

There is a 15 Hour USPAP Course and then there is the 7 HOUR USPAP Update. These are stand alone courses, separate courses that are not substitutes one for the other.


I think if you re-read what you said and what "they" said.....you will see the distinction between required CE and required USPAP Update.

The 7 Hour Update is mandatory every 2 years, required by the AQB.

The 15 hour USPAP can be used as CE credit but MAY NOT be used as a substitute for the required 7 Hour Update.

Below is right off your state website....on the continuing education page.

http://www.ibol.idaho.gov/REA/Procedures/REA_Education.htm


Each licensee is required to obtain fifteen (15) classroom hours of continuing education every 12 months prior to license renewal. This includes the requirement to attend an approved seven (7) hour USPAP update course once every two (2) years.

The 15 hours INCLUDES the 7 hour USPAP.

Thanks Compliant, but as I stated, there are other areas of the site that contradict that. My point was to share the meeting minutes with anyone who hadn't seen them to pass the word that we don't have to have 15 hours and an additional 7 hour USPAP.

I hope you will let them know so it can be corrected.
