Appraisal Courses

The Georgia Real Estate Appraisers Board is responsible for approving all individual appraisal courses to be offered by approved schools. An approved school may not hold any course out as approved by the Board until the course is posted on the Boards' electronic record of the school's courses or the school receives a certificate of approval from the Board.

The Board intends that all approved courses be educational in nature. For that reason, the Board does not permit a school to orient approved courses to the passing of the state examinations or other examinations. Approved courses should introduce students to the language of the profession and basic theory underlying the duties and responsibilities of a real estate appraiser. Approved courses shall require practice in the skills being taught and provide a significant number of exercises for practice of those skills. All courses should make students aware of the need for further study and the perfection of practical skills.

The information provided in this section of the website offers an overview of the common requirements for all approved courses and the specific curriculum requirements for the different levels of licensing and certification. We recommend reviewing Section 539-2 of the Board's Rules and the Appraisal School & Instructors Manual for more detailed information.
