Course Description

What is USPAP? 

USPAP stands for "The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice" and is published by The Appraisal Foundation (TAF) headquartered in Washington, DC. In 1989, Congress enacted the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act (FIRREA), which authorized TAF as "THE" source of appraisal standards and appraiser qualifications. "USPAP is the generally recognized ethical and performance standards for the appraisal profession in the United States" and was adopted by Congress in 1989.  USPAP contains standards for all types of appraisal services, including real estate, personal property, business and mass appraisal. USPAP is updated every two years providing appraisers with the information they need to deliver unbiased and thoughtful opinions of value.

What is the 7-Hour USPAP Update Course for Business Valuation? 

The 7-Hour USPAP Update Course for Business Valuation will familiarize users of USPAP Standards 9 and 10 with recent, significant revisions to USPAP that impact every practicing appraiser in the business valuation  arena. In addition, the course confronts some of the regularly misunderstood concepts in USPAP and reviews their application through the use of other communications published by the Appraisal Standards Board. This course will meet current USPAP continuing education requirements established by the Appraisal Foundation for BV appraisers.

Who should attend? 

Individuals who have completed the full 15-hour BV USPAP course and only require updated information, specifically BV professionals.

Important note: This course does not meet the Appraisal Foundation’s USPAP continuing education requirements for Real Property appraisers. This course will not be accepted by state real property licensing boards or for CE credit for state licensing of real property appraisers. This course may be used to meet qualifying USPAP requirements for beginning Real Property students who are seeking state certification, however, it is the responsibility of the student to verify acceptance of this course with his/her state prior to registering.
