ASA and Dana Teicheira to Host Webinar for Marine Surveyors, Attorneys Insurance Underwriters and Adjusters

April 24, 2023

ASA and Dana Teicheira have partnered together to host a new webinar: Appraisal 101 for Marine Surveyors, Attorneys, Insurance Underwriters and Adjusters on June 16, 2023, from 1pm -3pm EDT.

This webinar is intended to be a primer for Marine Surveyors and other maritime professionals who are involved with developing, or utilizing, appraisal values on marine assets; and offers 2.4 CE hours.

We will delve into the three methods of appraisal values (sales comparison, cost and income) and how they may apply to different types of vessels. This will include a discussion of using marine "blue books" and what method they fall under. We will also go into USPAP and those items necessary to include in the development of an appraisal. The discussion will include commonly seen "red flags" when doing an appraisal review on another appraisal report, including redacted report examples of compliant, and non-compliant reports.

Additionally, we will cover appraisal certifications, discuss what non-appraisal professionals (adjusters, underwriters, and attorneys) should look for in a survey and/or appraisal report; and how to make a current survey appraisal (commonly referred to as a Condition and Valuation Survey) a USPAP-compliant appraisal report.

Registration is available online at https://bit.ly/3N4wAQt or (800) 272-8258.
