Business Practices & Ethics (6 CE hours) @ via Zoom
Mar 28 @ 8:15 am – 3:00 pm
  • Check in begins at 8:15am

  • Class starts at 8:30am                

  • Instructor: Joseph Durrer, Jr., MAI, SRA

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.

Eye-opening discussions and practical problems (including ag problems) will keep you interested and engaged throughout the day. Objectives:

  • Recognize inconsistencies with the definition of market value and the need to stay consistent with the type of value opinion developed.
