All courses offered have been approved in MD by the Maryland Commission of Real Estate Appraiser, Appraisal Management Companies and Home Inspectors. MAA approved courses are accepted in DC, PA, and DE. For Delaware, a new law took effect 12/11/23 as follows: AQB approved courses such as USPAP are automatically approved and do not need to be submitted for approval. All other courses must be approved by the Council, by the licensee using the Council approved online system to submit all required documentation at least 60 days before the scheduled offering. Ask MAA for the course description/outline and instructor info. Credit is also recognized in W. VA for Maryland licencees who hold reciprocal licenses in that state. VA does not pre-approve CE and has historically accepted MAA courses that are approved in MD. To receive credit in VA ask us for the course description, outline & instructor bio to submit when you renew. For additional questions on receiving reciprocal credit with these surrounding states, please verify with your individual state boards or commissions. Please note that a number of courses have also been approved for Realtor CE and, where applicable, is indicated in the Notes Column with the course listings below. Please let us know if Realtor credit is needed and provide us with your Realtor License Number at the end of class as credit must be submitted to the RE Commission within 3 business days.

Please Note:
Any credential issued after December 2019 must be in compliance with the AQB Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria as outlined in the downloadable Education Requirements, above. MD legislation further establishes a Trainee License and requires that individuals in training to become licensed or certified real estate appraisers obtain that license. Without it, they cannot perform or sign appraisals, even under the direct supervision of a certified appraiser. The three-year license will be granted to applicants who successfully complete the 75- hour Appraiser Trainee Module and the Mandated Supervisory Appraiser and Trainee Appraiser Course. The license may be renewed one time for an additional three years (i.e. no career trainees). All renewals trainee, license, and certifications - are subject to the completion of all 42 hours continuing education, including the 7-hour National USPAP Update Course, required for the renewal of all categories of licensure.

Trainees should take note that the clock for their two year experience requirement is not automatically tied to the issue date of the Trainee License as it does not begin until they actually find a mentor and begin working on a regular basis after the Trainee License has been issued. There is no recognition of experience that may have been accumulated before the Trainee License was issued.

MAA accepts Mastercard and Visa.

For more information, please call 410-392-2909. You may also e-mail us at info@mdappraisers.org or fax to our 24-hour fax line at 410-392-2909.
