The Appraisal Qualifications Board of the Appraisal Foundation has recently changed the Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria. A summary of these changes, which are effective May 1, 2018, can be found at the Appraisal Foundation Website.
The Division will be undertaking Emergency Rule-Making before the Colorado Board of Real Estate Appraisers on April 30, 2018, in order to incorporate and be in compliance with these new appraiser qualifications. Once those rules are adopted, the Division will incorporate the new qualifications on this site.
If you are applying for an initial appraiser license or upgrading to a new credential (Licensed Appraiser, Certified Residential Appraiser, or Certified General Appraiser), the required education and experience requirements will be different, depending on if you apply before or after May 1, 2018. Therefore, you should consider those changes prior to submitting your application and materials for licensure. If you have any questions in this regard, please contact the Division at 303-894-2166.

Associate degree or higher OR successfully complete 30 semester hours of college-level education, from an accredited college, junior college, community college or university
