Course Description

The 7 Hour IVS course prepares the Valuer with what should be in a report to meet the IVS compliance requirements.  The material will give a cursory comparison of USPAP and IVS requirements.  This includes similarities and differences of important topics regarding development and reporting aspects of communicating of value acceptable to the client, regulator, or stakeholder.  

ASA is considered the leader in advancement of valuation theory with a growing international membership of appraisal professionals around the globe in the discipline of Machinery & Technical Specialties (M&TS).  This course will focus on stages of the IVS glossary that ties together the standards specific to IVS 300 Plant and Equipment. 

There is a case study at the conclusion of the course that allows the student to implement the terms of the engagement with the subject matter to complete the valuation reporting.  This will be of importance to your credibility in our industry whether the subject matter is located in North America and the client operates from a different continent.
