The mission of the Appraisal Institute's Technology-Based Education
(TBE) department is to develop technology-based programs to
meet the training and professional development needs of real
estate appraisers. Through our programs, individuals gain the
skills and knowledge required to meet Appraisal Institute and
state continuing professional development needs. Our programs
also contribute to individuals meeting the education requirements
for the Appraisal Institute's professional designations-the
SRA for residential appraisers and the MAI for commercial appraisers.
All of TBE's programs are developed and written by practicing appraisers
and other professionals and are reviewed
by teams of subject matter experts to ensure that their content
is accurate, up-to-date and relevant to today's appraisers.
All of programs are designed as learning experiences utilizing
relevant research from appropriate fields such as cognitive
science, educational psychology and instructional technology.
Approvals for Appraisal Institute Online Education
The Appraisal Institute's online education programs are approved by the following organizations:
The Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) is appointed by the Appraisal Foundation and establishes the qualification criteria for state licensing, certification and recertification of appraisers. FIRREA mandates that all state certified appraisers must meet the minimum education, experience and examination requirements promulgated by the AQB. The AQB has also developed voluntary criteria for personal property appraisers.
The International Distance Education Certification Center (IDECC) is a subsidiary of The Association of Real Estate License Law Officials (ARELLO). In 2000, the success of the ARELLO Distance Education Certification program created demand for another certification credential that could be used in industries beyond real estate. Regulatory agencies in the appraisal industry have recognized IDECC Certification as the leading credential for distance education courses.
