Real Estate Appraisers

Purpose:

To regulate real estate appraisers in accordance with federal and state laws, rules, and policies.

Mission:

The Real Estate Appraiser Commission strives to protect the public welfare by ensuring that only qualified persons are licensed or certified and that all licensees uphold the highest appropriate professional standards of practice, independence and competency.

Announcement

Effective August 5, 2021, our rules will allow licensees to take qualifying education (QE) classes online (prerecorded/asynchronous), in a classroom, or virtual (taught live/synchronous). Refer to the approved course list for TN approved QE courses. Online approved courses have “online” in the course title on the approved course list. All other courses on the approved course list are approved for classroom or virtual presentation.

At least 14 hours of the required 28 hours of Continuing Education (CE) for trainee and appraiser renewals must be taken in a classroom or virtual (taught live/synchronous). Online (prerecorded/asynchronous) classes will not fulfill the classroom or virtual requirement.

Please see Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 1255-01-.12 for further registered trainee requirements.
