Appraisal

Continuing Education & Renewal Info

Current Pennsylvania appraisers have until June 30, 2019 to complete 28 hours of state-approved continuing education.  A minimum of seven (7) hours must cover "Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice," and a minimum of two (2) hours must cover the Real Estate Appraisers Certification Act.

Certificates expire June 30 of every odd-numbered year.  The board mails renewal notices 2 to 3 months prior to the expiration date.  Notices are mailed to the most recent address the certificate-holder has reported to the Board.  The Postal Service does not forward licenses.

Appraisal Certification

As part of the education requirement, the 15-hour national USPAP course or equivalent is required (the course must be approved by the AQB and taught by an AQB certified USPAP instructor who is also a state-certified appraiser).
