ARM members need to successfully complete a 7-hour USPAP Update Course with every new release of USPAP (ie every time a new USPAP version and course is available - usually every two (2) years). ARM members may take any version of USPAP to meet their continuing education requirements.
BV members need to successfully complete at least seven (7) hours of USPAP course work every five (5) years. BV appraisers should still obtain new releases of USPAP as they become available (usually every two (2) years) and should make change(s) to their practice methodology accordingly. BV members must take the BV specific version of the 15-Hour USPAP course, but may take any version of the 7-Hour USPAP update course (although ASA encourages BV members to take the BV specific USPAP courses offered by ASA).
Designated RP appraisers (including Ad Valorem appraisers) need to complete the National USPAP Update Course with every new release of USPAP (usually every two (2) years).
