I became certified to teach USPAP 04/28/2002. Decided today to hang it up. Fifteen years is long enough and have not really enjoyed the last 5 years anyway.

Give your instructors a break. They are the messengers....please don't kill them. They have all spent lots of time and money to become and stay certified and reaped minimal financial gain or appreciation for their efforts. Most are doing it out of their love for the profession.

Gotta go now and find an online USPAP class.

That's sad.
Any particular reason you don't want to teach USPAP any more?

It is sad. I take all my CE online except USPAP. It's the most relevant. After 20+ years of mandatory classes that have about 1 hour of meaningful content and fluff and filler for the other 6 hours, it is the only one I don't mind taking. Of course, having a knowledgeable and motivated instructor is a pleasure.

Well, quite a few. My heart is just not in it anymore. I will be teaching some other topics and appraising until I die.

I dropped my teaching activities a few years back. It just wasn't worth the time/effort once the online courses became the norm for most people.

Everyone deserves a motivated instructor...and I am just not there anymore.

I can understand that.
Personally, I thought USPAP classes were much better when they taught the definitions and standards instead of the party-line crap FAQs they insist on now. After all, it’s the standards, definitions and comments we are responsible for.

It's pretty telling when the FAQ section is twice the size of the standards sections, and the FAQ section really doesn't cover much beyond standard 3.

Too many fingers in the proverbial pie should be obvious to many.

The last USPAP instructor I knew ended up renting small hotel banquet rooms that held about 20 people but some of her last classes only had 3 or 4 students show up which didn't even cover her room rental.
