Florida Appraiser Continuing Education Requirements:

Appraisers must complete 30 hours of Continuing Education every two years, on the even years by November 30th. The next renewal deadline is November 30th, 2016, but we encourage you to get a head start by completing your renewal requirements early. Classroom based courses are offered during renewal years only, however online courses can be completed at anytime.


Mandatory Post Licensing is now required for Trainee appraisers. If you became a licensed Trainee before November 30th, 2012 and have not already done so, you must complete 45 classroom hours of Board approved Post Licensing courses plus the 3 hour Florida Appraisal Law Update course before the end of your second renewal period. To learn more about your required post-license training click here: Appraisal Post-Licensing.
