Our Risk Management Courses

We have two appraiser risk management course options for you:

1. Appraiser Liability 101: Essential Concepts (CE Credit)

  • This course is approved for 4 hours of appraiser continuing education (CE) in AR, CA, HI, MO, OR and WA (more states coming).
  • Completion qualifies you for LIA’s E&O discount.
  • Course fee: $50 for just the course, or $75 for the course and “the book.”
  • What’s “the book?” It’s Peter Christensen’s Risk Management for Real Estate Appraisers and Appraisal Firms (published by the Appraisal Institute, 230 pages, with a regular retail price of $60). The book is not required for the course, however.

2. Appraiser Liability 50: Lending Work (Not for CE Credit)

  • This course is not approved for state appraiser continuing education (CE) in any state. It is for your education and self-protection (and entertainment).
  • Completion qualifies you for LIA’s E&O discount.
  • Course fee: $25 for just the course, or $50 for the course and “the book.”
  • What’s “the book?” It’s Peter Christensen’s Risk Management for Real Estate Appraisers and Appraisal Firms (published by the Appraisal Institute, 230 pages, with a regular retail price of $60). The book is not required for the course, however.

What’s the difference between the two courses? The content is actually the same. The main difference is that Appraiser Liability 50 is not approved for state appraiser continuing education credit, and it thus moves a bit faster because there are slightly fewer quiz questions and certain content is optional.
