Anyone have information on providers or a list of approved providers? I've contacted Appraisal Institute and McKissock and neither offer the training. I've contacted a few companies that specialize in the training but they only offer it for companies of 4 or more employees.

Please Note That All Licensed Illinois Real Estate Appraisers Must Complete The 28 Hours of Continuing Education Required By 68 Ill. Adm. Code 1455.160 In Addition To The Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Required By the Illinois Civil Administrative Code (“Department of Professional Regulation Law”) At 20 ILCS 2105/2105-15.5 During Each License Renewal Period

Illinois Code said:
(20 ILCS 2105/2105-15.5)
Sec. 2105-15.5. Continuing education; sexual harassment prevention training.
(a) As used in this Section, "sexual harassment" means any unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors or any conduct of a sexual nature when: (i) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment; (ii) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting such individual; or (iii) such conduct has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual's work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment. For the purpose of this definition, "working environment" is not limited to a physical location that an employee is assigned to perform his or her duties and does not require an employment relationship.
(b) For license renewals occurring on or after January 1, 2020 for a profession that has continuing education requirements, the required continuing education hours shall include at least one hour of sexual harassment prevention training.
(c) The Department may adopt rules for the implementation of this Section.

I'm quite certain that if one of our clients got wind that some jerk fondled a homeowner's heiny they'd probably know what to do. Or if some wiseguy asked a wife if she'd like "to escort him upstairs" (for taking pics, whatever), they'd know what to do.

I don't need ANYONE advising me how to conduct myself while out in the field.

All these sex crazed appraisers need instruction, but guys in the girls' locker room is "progressive". Yeah, right, makes perfect sense to me.

reading section (a) of the code it would seem this is not applicable to independent fee appraisers.

(i) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment; (ii) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting such individual; or (iii) such conduct has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual's work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment. For the purpose of this definition, "working environment"

however, section (b) of the code clearly states (b) For license renewals occurring on or after January 1, 2020 for a profession that has continuing education requirements, which includes independent fee appraisers

certified is a type of license

Illinois code said:
"License" means a license, registration, certification, permit, or other authority purporting to be issued or conferred by the Department by virtue or authority of which the licensee has or claims the right to engage in a profession, trade, occupation, or operation of which the Department has jurisdiction.
"Licensee" means a person who holds or claims to hold a license. An unlicensed person or entity that holds himself, herself, or itself out as a licensee or engages in a licensed activity shall be deemed to be a licensee for the purposes of investigation or disciplinary action.
