Course Description

This is the 7-Hour National Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) Update Course, developed by The Appraisal Foundation. The course is roughly divided into two sections. The first focuses on changes to USPAP, which are effective starting January 1, 2024; the second presents case studies that show how USPAP applies in situations that appraisers may encounter. These case studies primarily address problems experienced by appraisers in the appraisal of real property.

This course is designed to assist appraisers in all areas of appraisal practice seeking USPAP competency, including those who are subject to state licensing or certification and continuing education requirements of professional organizations, client groups, or employers.

Major appraisal organizations in the United States have endorsed and adopted USPAP, and federal law requires that states use USPAP in their real property appraiser licensing and certification programs.
