Business Practices & Ethics (6 CE Hours) @ Brightpoint Community College, Midlothian Campus, Room E201
Sep 25 @ 8:30 am – 3:30 pm
  • Check in begins at 8:15am
  • Class starts at 8:30am    
  • Room E201 in Eliades Hall on the Midlothian campus of Brightpoint Community College, formerly known as John Tyler Community College.     
  • The most convenient lots are parking Lot A or D.  Also, there is handicapped parking right in front of the building.        
  • Instructor: Robert Duke, MAI, AI-GRS

Business Practices and Ethics is an important course that provides information about standards and ethics requirements for valuers in general and, more specifically, for valuers who belong to the Appraisal Institute. Through discussion questions and examples, the class compares behavior and actions that illustrate violations of the Code of Professional Ethics, and participants learn how referrals can be made. Participants are also introduced to the Appraisal Institute Guide Notes to the Standards of Professional Practice and use these Guide Notes to resolve everyday appraisal practice problems. At the end of the course, they learn about common errors in appraisal reports and review reports, and they respond to questions about challenges that arise in appraisal practice such as requests for updates and requests to change or add intended users. These are common business practice issues that appraisers encounter in various assignments, including mortgage lending, litigation, and property tax appeal. Other real-life scenarios in the course illustrate less common business practice issues such as an appraiser’s obligation when illegal or criminal behavior is observed.

Course Materials Include:

  • Course Handbook (239 pp.)
  • AI Professional Practices Booklet Supplement (162 pp.)
  • Make sure you have downloaded class materials PRIOR to class
  • If you order (and ship) printed materials to you, make sure they arrive 1 week prior to class.
  • Contact the national office if there is any issues at least one week prior to class.
Note: The AQB approved this course for 6 hours of CE. Check with your state for approved credit hours.
