Course Description

This course will provide appraisers with an in-depth understanding of the essential principles and processes necessary to develop and report an appraisal for the intended use of insurance scheduling. The focus of the course is the practical application of the principles learning in GJ201 with USPAP Standard 7 and Standard 8 forming the basis for the development and reporting of a gems and jewelry appraisal. Students will receive a thorough understanding of when and how to apply the primary approaches to valuation, recognizing and ranking relevant characteristics of specific types of property, core concepts of data research and reconciliation, narrative report writing and the required elements of a USPAP-compliant and ASA-compliant report. To receive credit for the course, students will construct a new appraisal report or will modify an existing appraisal report of a single item of jewelry to demonstrate their understanding of and competency in the material presented in class. Successful completion of GJ201, GJ202, and GJ203 is required for accreditation through ASA.
