MTS Courses Are Changing - Please Read
ASA's MTS Principles of Valuation (POV) courses (ME201 - ME204) are undergoing a major revamp and new courses will be launching in the fall of 2024. To ensure a smooth transition, the four legacy MTS POV courses will sunset at the end of the current fiscal year (June 30, 2024). If you're currently working through these courses, we encourage you to complete the four course series before the 2024 sunset date.
This course will introduce more advanced concepts and techniques than those taught in ME201 and ME202. A review of case studies illustrating a range of operating entities will be employed. This course will explore exponential pricing techniques, cost estimation, reproduction vs. replacement costs, quantifying functional obsolescence, use of research data, time value of money calculations and more. A financial calculator (we recommend HP12C) is required.
*Accredited MTS Members who took the ME201-204 courses for accreditation purposes may not retake the courses for reaccreditation/continuing education (CE) credits. Those who have not previously completed these courses must successfully pass the associated exam to receive ASA reaccreditation/CE credit. No reaccreditation/CE credit will be awarded for the audio version of this course.
Methods include lectures, discussions and individual/ group exercises and assignments.
