Applying for the AM or ASA Designation*
Depending upon a Candidate's certifications and education, different requirements are needed to complete an application. In general, the process is as follows:
- Complete the online accreditation application;
- Provide a valid copy of your State Certified General License or your State Certified Residential License (if applicable);
- Provide proof of two (2) years of full-time appraisal experience by submitting an appraisal experience log; and
- Submit two (2) market value reports (may be expanded form style appraisal reports)
considering all three (3) approaches to value performed within the last two (2) years (this refers to the
report submission date, not the valuation date). These must be actual reports that were done for clients
within your chosen specialty. Report checklists are
not required for Real Property appraisal reports.
*Detailed information on prerequisites, the application process, and application requirements are outlined in the RP Guide to Professional Accreditation.
