Please Note:
Any credential issued on or after January 1, 2015 must be in compliance with the AQB Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria as outlined in the downloadable Education Requirements, above. MD legislation further establishes a Trainee License and requires that individuals in training to become licensed or certified real estate appraisers obtain that license. Without it, they cannot perform or sign appraisals, even under the direct supervision of a certified appraiser. The three-year license will be granted to applicants who successfully complete the 75- hour Appraiser Trainee Module. The license may be renewed one time only for an additional three years (i.e. no career trainees). All renewals trainee, license, and certifications - are subject to the completion of all 42 hours continuing education, including the 7-hour National USPAP Update Course, required for the renewal of all categories of licensure. Please note that the Maryland Real Estate Appraisers Commission requires that a minimum of 2,000 hours experience for the basic appraisal license be acquired over no less than 24 months.

Trainees should take note that the clock for their two year experience requirement is not automatically tied to the issue date of the Trainee License as it does not begin until they actually find a mentor and begin working on a regular basis after the Trainee License has been issued. There is no recognition of experience that may have been accumulated before the Trainee License was issued.

MAA accepts Mastercard and Visa.
