WRA CE: your top choice in appraiser continuing education

As the leading expert in Wisconsin real estate practice for over 100 years, the WRA is your top choice in Wisconsin appraiser CE. All appraiser licenses expire every two years and must be renewed by December 14 of odd-numbered years. All certified and licensed appraisers are required to complete 28 hours of CE each biennial period, which must include a 7-hour USPAP Update course. Appraisers may not receive credit for completion of the same CE course offering within a continuing education cycle.


Upcoming courses

Your Appraisal Is Credible. Is it Reliable, Reproducible and Accurate? 

February 1, 2022 | 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. | 2022 Winter Convention in Green Bay

Using a series of case studies with actual appraisal situations, this course compares and contrasts what USPAP requires in an appraisal (credibility) and an appraisal report (not misleading) with what the GSE requires in an appraisal report (reliable, accurate and reproducible). While there are some significant differences in these requirements, there are also an amazing number of similarities. The challenge will be to explain to the hypothetical client how and why the appraiser concluded there was an appraisal issue as well as how best to explain it to the client. This hands-on course uses both the USPAP text and the Fannie Mae Selling Guide, but don't worry — there's no need to bring these to the course. This course includes a lecture, group discussion, group work, individual work and, with any luck, some laughter, too!
