USPAP Instructor Recertification

The certifications for all AQB Certified USPAP Instructors will expire on March 31, 2024. To renew your certification beyond this date, you are required to complete the online Instructor Recertification Course (IRC), which will be offered through The Appraisal Foundation's (Foundation) online partner McKissock.  

The online IRC will be available for six (6) months, from October 1, 2023, to March 31, 2024. All Instructors must complete this course by March 31, 2024, 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, 2024. 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, 2024, the instructor will not be permitted to teach the 2023-2024 USPAP courses.  If an instructor has not successfully passed the IRC on or before March 31, 2024, certification will expire midnight Eastern Time on March 31, 2024, and the individual would need to reapply to take the Instructor Certification Course (ICC).  

The online IRC is not recognized by the Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) as being equivalent to the 7-Hour National USPAP Update Course (or its equivalent); therefore, the online IRC will not satisfy state appraiser regulatory agency requirements for completion of the 7-Hour National USPAP Update Course and will not count toward appraiser continuing education requirements.
