0,000I just got an e-mail from The Appraisal Foundation with a list of AQB Certified USPAP Instructors. A nationwide list.

How about a guess or two before I give the official count?

Now remember, starting NEXT YEAR, every appraiser in the country will have to take a 7 hour USPAP class froma Certified Instructor every 2 years.

The nationwide appraiser count is somewhere between 65,0000 and 90,000 depending on who you ask.

How many Certified Instructors will we need? How many do we have as of today?

Pam indeed does have a very fine lap. I had the pleasure of meeting her in Charlotte, NC last year. I was not allowed to sit on her lap but it was a nice to meet her.

Bob,

As to be expected, California has far more instructors (13) than any other state. Washington has 6, and there are several states (6) with 5 instructors. I wonder which state has the highest ratio of instructors to licensed appraisers?

I recognize at least 5 names on that list as being frequent fliers on this forum. That's a pretty good representation, considering how wild we tend to get here.

Good question. North Carolina has 950+- appraiser per instructor (3800 divided by 4).

I know there is a class in Raleigh in August and tne NCAB board members and staff will be taking it.
