- Certified Residential Appraiser
About 3 months ago I took on my first trainee. First and probably last. After about 2 months they went to work full time with another appraiser long before I was ever able to recoup any of the money/time spent helping to train that person. After talking with several other appraisers.....one of them said they would take on a trainee.......and charge the trainee $10 to $15 per hour depending on their experience (are they a REALTOR or prior lender or banker, etc). Anyone ever heard of charging a trainee....to actually train them? Just thinking out loud here.
