I am looking for opinions regarding a 7 hr CE course.
Is there interest or would it be helpful to appraisers for a 7 hour appraisal CE course that is the actual public record of a complaint made to a state board regarding an appraisal I prepared.The appraisal report was a 1004.The complaint was a 4 year process that I lived, worried and fought to conclusion. It was expensive and exhaustive.
I have been a USPAP Instructor since 2002, appraiser for over 25 years. My teaching experience has been in 24 states to over 6000 appraisers.
My goal is to present the course in an attempt to be informative and helpful to those appraisers that are not aware of the administrative regulatory process and the workings of the legal system. It will not be a "How to beat the system" course but a factual account of an actual event that "but for the grace of God" go all of us.
Your opinions would be important to me and would be very much appreciated.
We must make the CE requirement real and meaningful.

47,
I think it would be a fantastic CE course. Considering what you've been through, you could probably write a good book as well. (I would buy a copy.) Maybe with a slant like 'BEFORE this happens to YOU', or 'THIS could happen to YOU' towards appraisers.
I sincerely hope that you find a way to profit handsomely from your experience. Best of luck with this!

CE Course

I am sure with your experience I would expect you could develope a very useable course.
I have a real problem finding "meaningful" CE. Your idea sounds good, Go for it.

Get approval in Illinois. They are reasonable people.

It is a highly individual process in most states however. Procedures are different state by state.

Larry,

I took a CE class in Knoxville from you on the cost approach a few years ago. I was the appraiser that had the Marsall & Swift Residential Express Software on his lap top and you let me demonstrate it to the class. I was very impressed with your knowledge and teaching ability. I would be very interested in a class like what you are describing. The only problem I can see is getting it approved by the appraiser boards. Ha! Ha!

I attended a USPAP class you taught, and it was the best USPAP class I've ever taken. I too would be interested in this type of class. As far as difficulty getting it approved, why shouldn't appraisers have a say in what classes are available to them? Why should we be stuck with the same old ho-hum crap with nothing new to offer? Perhaps we should start petitioning the ASB and our state boards that we want more meat in our CE!

PS Welcome to the AF, Larry!
