ASA to Offer One Year Complimentary Membership for Aircraft Valuation Program Non-Member Students

Aug 14, 2020

The American Society of Appraisers (ASA) announces the offering of a one year complimentary membership for non-member students* of the Society's Aircraft Valuation program.

The four-course training program is designed to broaden students' skill sets by providing the necessary terminology, methods and concepts of aircraft valuation as well as a solid foundation regarding the three approaches to valuation, ethics in appraisals and professional standards. It also paves the way to becoming a credentialed aircraft valuer and designated member of ASA.

In addition, all those seeking accreditation in ASA’s Aircraft Valuation Program are no longer required to pass an aviation specialty exam in order to earn an AM or ASA designation. The four courses within this training program (ME201ACS – ME204ACS) complete the appraisal education required for credentialing.

Students are no longer required to pass an aviation specialty exam in order to earn an AM or ASA designation with an aircraft valuation specialty.

Machinery & Equipment Appraisers, Aircraft Equipment Leasing and Finance Professionals and others allied to this specialty are encouraged to register.

The first class will be held virtually on October 28th – 31st via online webinar.

*Eligible registrants will need to submit a completed ASA new member online application along with the required accompanying documentation within six (6) months after conclusion of their first class. Within ten (10) months of application approval, new members must also complete a USPAP course and pass ASA's online (and open book) Ethics Exam. Please visit our website for an overview of the membership process and associated requirements (see Step 1 and Step 2) at
