Apparently, this is going to be the new requirements for CR.  I have attached the PDF.  (Page 2 is the pertinent page.)

The change that surprised me is that is no college courses are required if the licensed appraiser has 5 years experience with no disciplinary action within the 5-year period.

The AQB changes are effective May 1, 2018.  The state has to implement the changes.  They may or may not do so.

Does that include experience as a Realtor?

I have edited my original post and attached the PDF file.  Sorry I left it off.  After rereading it, 5 years as a licensed appraiser is required.  With the experience for CR reduced to 1,500 hours in a period of at least one year, a person with the necessary college credits (or any 4-year degree) can go from nothing to certified in 12 months.  A person can go from nothing to licensed in 6 months.

Without the college courses, CR will take 5.5 years.

Be aware that this is my interpretation of the AQB qualification summary.

I think it sounds reasonable for someone who wants to build a business and not have trainees pick up and leave after you have invested years of knowledge and time.  Is there currently a lack of appraisers, no.  Could that change in 5-10 years (if we are still around...), yes.
