The Division of Real Estate (Division) established the Conservation Easement Appraiser Update Course to ensure appraisers had a sufficient amount of training and expertise to accurately prepare an appraisal for a conservation easement generating a tax credit.
An appraiser who prepares and signs an appraisal for a conservation easement generating a tax credit must complete the Conservation Easement Appraiser Update Course once every other year. The Division will not issue a tax credit certificate unless the appraiser is compliant with the course requirement at the appraisal was completed. Below is a current list of certified general appraisers who are in compliance with the course requirement. Please note that completion of the course does not certify the competency of the appraiser to perform conservation easement appraisals. Completion of the course should not be construed by any party to be an endorsement of any appraiser or their work product by the Division of Real Estate, the Board of Real Estate Appraisers, the Conservation Easement Oversight Commission, the Curriculum Task Force or course providers.
The Division established and developed the Conservation Easement Appraiser Update Course with the intent of allowing approved providers to teach the course.
Each course offering must be approved by the Board of Real Estate Appraiser (Board) for at least 2 hours of continuing education to satisfy Board Rule 16.4. A detailed outline must be included with the continuing education course application. Instructors/providers are responsible for submitting the application to the Division for approval.
