In NC our rules are such that a Certified Residential Supervisor is allowed to have up to 2 trainees. There is no limit to the number of supervisors a trainee may have. Joe Trainee in theory could be supervised by 5 certified appraisers performing work under each supervisor without violating any rules. (Assuming that each supervisor isn't jamming him up this is feasible-slow days make this a viable way for a trainee to gain experience without sitting around for ages hoping for trainee work to appear with a single supervisor.) Is this the way it is in Florida or is the trainee limited to a certain number of supervisors? Thanks for the info.:new_smile-l:

In Florida, a Certified appraiser may have up to 3 trainees. They must LIVE in the county or a contiguous county to the supervisor's office. The trainee may only have 1 registered supervisor, but can also be supervised by other certified appraisers within the same office. The trainee may not have their own clients and can only receive payment from the supervisor. These restrictions fortify the IRS code, that trainees are employees.

Thanks

I appreciate the info. It's interesting how different states have things set up. Before we make any changes I like to get a good idea about the local rules to be sure I don't do something that is fine in one area and completely sideways in another.:new_multi:
