SECTION 5-20.7-10


§ 5-20.7-10 Experience requirement.

(a) An original certification as a state certified real estate appraiser or licensing as a state licensed appraiser shall not be issued to any person who does not possess the requisite experience in real property appraisal as required by the appraisal qualifications board of the Appraisal Foundation and supported by adequate written reports or file memoranda. The experience must be acquired within a period of five (5) years immediately preceding the filing of the application for certification. The experience shall be of the type of appraisal for which the applicant is seeking certification/licensing and shall meet the minimum standards of the Appraisal Foundation and/or applicable federal regulations.

(b) Each applicant for certification and licensing shall furnish, under oath, a detailed listing of the real estate appraisal reports or file memoranda for each year for which experience is claimed by the applicant. For an applicant for general certification at least fifty percent (50%) of the prepared reports must demonstrate knowledge and working understanding of income capitalization or other nonresidential reports. Upon request, the applicant shall make available to the director or board for examination a sample of appraisal reports, which the applicant has prepared in the course of his or her practice.

(c) In order for a licensed trainee appraiser to be issued certification as a state certified appraiser or licensing as a state licensed appraiser, the trainee must have completed the requisite experience in real property appraisal as required by the appraisal qualification board and supported by adequate written reports or file memoranda. That experience must be completed under the direct supervision of certified real estate appraisers. The trainee may rely on more than one supervising appraiser in order to complete this experience requirement, and no certified appraiser shall supervise more than three (3) trainees.
