HELP PLEASE!! I know this was discussed on the old forum, but I couldn't find it under the search words I used.

The Oklahoma REAB is meeting this Friday with possible changes in the method of calculating experience listed on the agenda. Currently, in Oklahoma, we are to log actual hours spent on each appraisal, listing the type of appraisal, etc on our log. The word is that they will accept an average of about 12 hours per 1004 with lesser amounts for 2055s, 2075s, 2070s, etc. etc. More for commercials, etc. This means about 208-210 1004s to meet requirements for Cert. Res.

I would like to know how the various states calculate experience so I can comment at the board meeting. Any comments on how your state calculates experience would be very much appreciated. Also, what are "newbies" called in your state. We have "appraiser trainees", but there is some resistance to that connotation and they are thinking of changing the term.

In GA, appraiser trainees are called Registered Appraisers.

In Alabama we are refered to as "Trainee Appraisers"

Experience was logged hours but was changed to a point system. I belive 1 point for a URAR and more or less point for each assignment. You have to have 200 points to sit for Licensed or Cert. Residential. Education hours are different for each class.

Robert, in our area the combination was changed again, but I believe it's around 2000 hours internship and some class work, but haven't checked recently.

As for the term "Appraiser Trainee", which I never liked - it should be changed; maybe "Appraiser Intern" would be more appropriate, as you are also studying under an Appraiser;

I think before you become a Doctor, you do an "Internship" - just don't know, any :idea:

Bob Ipock,

How does NC determine points? Is it one point for each 1004, less for 2055, more for commercial. What values are given for each type of assignment?

Bob;
If you only get 1 point for a SFR as a trainee and I'll just assume it takes them 10 hours of time start to finish, something seems out of wack there :?: Is it 300 points or 3000 hours :?: Whats Up :?
