Licensed appraisers with 5 years experience and no infractions can move up to Certified Res. Does anybody know if I have to create a log that satisfy the required hours? If so that sucks, I have not kept a log because the previous guidelines required a degree (which I do not have) so what was the point? You can not estimate the number of hours on each assignment, there is no way I am going to remember how many hours on each assignment from months or even years ago. Not to mention I never kept track anyway. I have done just fine for the last 13 years just as a licensed appraiser and am questioning if I would even benefit becoming certified given the time it would take put together a log, study for the test and fork out at least $600 in fees.

Any info or thoughts would be great, thanks!

If your license level required more hours to obtain than are now required the state should already have that log, by virtue of your previous approval.
Example, 2000 hours for license and now 1500 for certified.
You will need QE specific classes (proctored exams) along with the certified test.

It says fiver years, you have five years you have been doing work, call the DBPR in your state for details , besides the cert res test, even the degree requirement is gonr, there are some course credit requirements to become licensed not sure if that applied to moving from licensed to cert .

AQB is national.

States can implement, modify or keep current requirements.

Check DIRECTLY with your state board for APPROPRIATE answers.
