Supervisory Appraiser/Trainee Appraiser Course
Aug 23 @ 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

Instructors: Brett W. Hall, MAI, SRA

Description: 

This six hour Minnesota Supervisory Appraiser/Trainee Course targets all individuals who became Supervisory Appraisers or Trainee Appraisers on Jan. 1. Many MN Appraiser Supervisors were under the impression, that if they were a supervisor, or a trainee, prior to 1/1/2015; that the new law did not apply to them. Appraisers understood they would be ‘grandfathered’ into this new law. This is correct, they are, but for the original supervisor/trainee relationship they had as of January 1. HOWEVER, if a supervisor adds any NEW trainees, or if a trainee works with another licensed/certified appraiser, who was NOT their supervisor on January 1; then attending this course is a requirement for these individuals involved.
