TAF demands to control USPAP but I took my class in early May and according to the instructor, they sometimes take 6 weeks or more to post to the states.

My certs expire June 30th like everyone else in the class....yet it is not posted that we have our USPAP done yet, we have one more week....so we wait on TAF to provide us proof we took the class.

sux - the sooner TAF is abolished the better.

Who was the course provider? I work for Kaplan and they send certificates within a couple of days and sometimes even have them ready by the end of the class.

Oh, we can send certificates out but according to what I understand, TAF has to vett the class - why? If they don't have power to disapprove the class, why are they even doing this? Why can't the states do it themselves? If they say the course or instructor was not compliant, what happens to your license? tenative? Without the TAF approval the online license payment won't work, I think.

I am ok with the State, but my FHA expires and the ASC site is not updated yet.

I am so glad you are so much smarter than I am....USPAP is offered by our local organization and that was the only available dates for the course except May 31st....In the computer age why does it take TAF MONTHS to pass the info on to the state, el brainy one?

As usual, it's your state that has the problem; you should probably be complaining about them. You can chalk it up to State's rights - they have the right to take a simple renewal process and make it hard for you. Your state has apparently exercised its options.

But not every state is like that. In California the OREA accepts the certs printed by the school so long as they include the OREA course approval number on them. Other states handle it similarly. According to a couple of my students, Utah apparently accepts CE certs from other states.

Of course, California's OREA has its own problems. We are required to submit our renewal application package - with CE completed - at least 90 days prior to the expiration date. And they almost always take the full 90 days to get it through.

Location, location, location.
