2018 Criteria Changes for Appraisers

On February 1, 2018, The Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) adopted changes to the education and experience requirements for obtaining the Licensed (L) and Certified Residential (CR) classifications.  All of the adopted changes lessen the 2015 requirements, therefore making it easier for candidates to meet the criteria for these classifications.

Effective October 15, 2018, The GA Real Estate Appraisers Board (GREAB) adopted the following changes to Rule 539-1-.16 regarding the education requirements for L and CR candidates:

  1. College-level education requirements for L applicants are no longer required.  Applicant must be a high school graduate or holder of a GED diploma. See Chapter 539-1-.16(3)c for details.
  2. Alternative college-level education options are now available for CR applicants, and applicant is no longer required to have a 4-year degree.  See Chapter 539-1-.16(4)c for details.

Note: GREAB has NOT adopted any change to the experience requirements.
