AQB Certified USPAP Instructor Program

Welcome to the section of The Appraisal Foundation's website developed specifically for AQB Certified USPAP Instructors. Here you will find all that you need to know as a USPAP Instructor and, if you're not certified but are interested in the program, all you need to know to become a USPAP Instructor.

The AQB Certified USPAP Instructor Program was implemented in February 2002 as one component of revisions that the Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) adopted to its Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria in October 2000.

The program, a formal process to certify USPAP Instructors to teach the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), was adopted in an effort to improve the overall quality of USPAP instruction for all appraisal disciplines.

Since January 1, 2003, only AQB Certified USPAP Instructors have been permitted to teach the National USPAP Courses (15-hour and 7-hour courses).

In order to become a USPAP Instructor you must complete the steps listed below:

(1) Submit an AQB Certified USPAP Instructor Program application to The Appraisal Foundation;
(2) Have your application approved by the Foundation;
(3) If your application is approved, you will be notified by the Foundation and must then register for the Instructor Certification Course (ICC);
(4) You must attend the entire Instructor Certification Course (ICC) and successfully complete the examination on the last day;
(5) If you attend the entire ICC course and successfully complete the examination, you must then complete and sign a USPAP Instructor Performance and Confidentiality Agreement and submit them both to the Foundation.

NOTE:  USPAP Instructors should be aware that in order for a real property appraiser to receive state education credit for attending a National USPAP Course (15-hour or 7-hour), the USPAP Instructor teaching the course must be a current state Certified General or Certified Residential appraiser.
