How to Renew Appraiser Qualifications Board Certified USPAP Instructor Certification
The certifications for all Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) Certified USPAP Instructors will expire on March 31, 2018. To renew your certification beyond this date, you are required to complete the online Instructor Recertification Course (IRC), which will be made offered through The Appraisal Foundation's (Foundation) online partner McKissock.
The online IRC will be available for six (6) months, from October 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018. All Instructors must complete this course by March 31, 2018 to renew their certification beyond that date. Instructors who choose to recertify will have their instructor certification extended for two (2) years to March 31, 2020. An examination will not be included with the online IRC.
If an Instructor does not successfully complete the most recent offering of the IRC prior to January 1, 2018, the instructor will not be permitted to teach the 2018-2019 USPAP courses. If an Instructor has not successfully passed the IRC on or before March 31, 2018, certification will expire midnight Eastern Time on March 31, 2018, and the individual would need to reapply to take the Instructor Certification Course (ICC).
