Veterans Resource Page

Welcome to The Appraisal Foundation’s Veterans Resource page. A career transition can be both a challenge and an opportunity. The Appraisal Foundation, the nation’s foremost authority on the appraisal and valuation profession, believes that a career in appraising and valuation is an excellent next step for our nation’s veterans. We believe this not only because of the skills you have gained serving our nation, but also because of the independence the appraisal profession provides.  

To learn more about a career in appraising click here. Also, we have a list of appraisers who are veterans in the "Resources" section below that you can speak with directly about the appraisal profession and how they transitioned into it after their military service.

The Appraisal Foundation is proud that appraisal organizations, such as the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers (ASFMRA), are already stepping up to help veterans. ASFMRA's core appraisal courses have been approved by the Veteran's Administration for inclusion in the GI Bill.
