Appraiser Renewal and USPAP Audit

Hide Featured Image

The Division of Real Estate wants to take this opportunity to remind all active licensed and certified appraisers of their continuing education requirements.

A. The 7-hour National USPAP Continuing Education Course must be completed during every two (2) year licensing period. A 7-hour USPAP certificate must be submitted to the Division prior to initiating the renewal of an appraiser license and must show a completion date between January 1, 2022, and December 31, 2023 (any version of USPAP offered during this timeframe is acceptable). Appraiser licensees should have received an email with detailed instructions for the USPAP submission. To date, the Division has received the USPAP certificate from approximately 65% of the eligible renewing appraisers. The Division records indicate there are 630 appraisers who need to submit their 7-hour USPAP certificate prior to renewing their license.

It is recommended that licensees complete their USPAP audit submission as soon as possible, but no later than December 15, 2023, to allow enough time for processing and avoid a lapse in licensure. Renewal applications received after Friday, December 15, 2023, and prior to January 31, 2023, may be subject to the following:

  • An indication on the Appraisal Subcommittee’s National Registry of Appraisers that the license has expired (the license will show inactive on the National Registry licensee search);
  • An audit of all 28 hours of continuing education required during the license cycle;
  • Fines and makeup education for any licensee who is deficient in their continuing education; and
  • Additional fees for license reinstatement if the CE certificate review moves beyond the January 31 renewal submission deadline.

B.  All other continuing education requirements for renewing licensees must be completed by December 31, 2023.

C.  For all licensees, you might consider visiting the Appraiser Continuing Education Page linked below to review all approved continuing education courses, including the 7-hour USPAP course.
