I'm not doing an appraisal function. Verified also by E&O, State Board, and USPAP instructor.
I do the inspections for the bifurcated appraisals and is a requirement to be a trainee or certified. Those inspections can be used for trainee hours.
Am I understanding this correctly that the inspection portion of a bifurcated assignment can be used for Appraiser Trainee hours in your state but the state board gave you direction that you are not acting as an appraiser while doing them? You note that you must be a trainee or certified to conduct them. Is this a client specific requirement?

The inspections can be used for trainee hours and you indicate that it is not an appraisal function as verified by a USPAP instructor. Can't have it both ways. Actually, the inspection is an appraisal function, which is why you need to be licensed. In FLA, that is a non-starter though as trainees cannot inspect without their supervisor being present for the first year.

You have no idea what goes into an appraisal and everyone on this forum knows exactly what is required when inspecting and measuring a property. Please don't try to diminish the other half of the appraisal to which you are a part of for "beer money".

Appraisers are professionals, if you want to become an appraiser, fine, welcome. But asking what is the easiest way to get a trainee license says that you will likely never make the jump into the actual profession beyond bifurcated inspections. Also, most states require direct supervision of a trainee for the license to be active. Good luck!
You didnt read my post. Thanks for that.

I don’t think An Appraiser doing the desktop analysis could/would have credible objections to what you wrote/say your doing and the requirements.
Ok good.

If you have questions ask them. All I was doing was asking a question for my kid. If you want more information contact the company. I assume they have many appraisers on the panel based off emails they send out. And I know they require a license in real estate business aka why I posted this for my kid. Should know who the company is as you've read all my posts in detail. I'm touched you care about me that much to take time out of your day.

Imagine an inspection company doing it right to provide quality reports. No one would know that here due to our heads up our *** like me prior to hearing that conversation to reach out and DETERMINE if it is worth it.

Thanks for the assistance of the appraisers helping a fellow appraiser. God Bless.

Calif ranks 48 out of 50. But hey, we're part of the oh-so-enlightened coastal elite who thinks we have the moral superiority it takes to talk down to Middle America so we've got that going for us.
Not only that, but aren't they all Socialists and hate America?

I agree with NP's point that inspecting is either appraising - which for experience credit purposes would require the trainee to work under the supervision of an appraiser - or it's not appraisal practice and the inspector can work solo. The state can't have it both ways.

So glad the education barrier was lowered for for res license ( sarcasm ) ...it was not overkill and in any case overkill would have been better than under kill, if this is OP thread is an indication ...

Though this post might be from a troll Is it? I hope so.. In any case I might think in large part training now is being done by national fee mill shops ( forysthe, metro west ) and AMC's using a staff appraiser for it.

The OP seems to be asking about his kid re inspection company panel to inspect.

Agreed but was looking for minimal to no effort/time that provides a trainee license. I do the inspections for the bifurcated appraisals and is a requirement to be a trainee or cerified. Those inspections can be used for trainee hours. So I want to get him those hours and learn the measuring skills. That is the hardest to master at this point with technology growing to help with the comps/value side.

It is a good tool for trainees when it comes to measuring many different styles multiple times a week and likely many others do the same.
Currently, those inspections can't be used for trainee hours unless the appraiser signing the report is the trainee's supervisor and describes the trainee's involment in the report, or the trainee signs the certification. Neither of these apply in the case of bifurcated, because the inspector and appraiser don't have the mentor/trainee relationship. At least in my state, at least for now. Your best bet is to find an appraiser willing to take on a trainee, or even apply to entry level positions in assessor offices.

I usually squeeze in about 10 a week if they are available. Make 700-900 a week for maybe 5 or 6 hours.
Seriously?? $150 per hour for these 6 hours of work??? and each one averages approximately 36 minutes to complete? are they all next door to the office? this really does not sound logical. or reasonable. or true.
