Important Information! Effective December 1, 2014, the state of Florida will require a 3-hour Supervisor and Trainee course, that applies to all new or existing applicants for a Trainee registration. This course must comply with the AQB course objectives and outline. You can access the outline at the link below. As of January 1, 2015, any existing Certified Appraiser adding a Trainee, or Certified Appraisers, who currently supervise, but wish to change the composition of existing Trainees, will also be required to complete this course, prior to adding the Trainee or making a change. If you are a Certified Appraiser who does not wish to supervise trainees, or who does not wish to make changes to your existing trainee composition, you are not required to take this course. This is not the same course that was previously required at initial licensing or renewal in previous years, commonly known as the Roles and Responsibilities course. We are encouraging all providers, schools, and instructors to please submit their course materials for this new course that complies with the AQB course outline. This course can be offered as classroom or distance education. If you are a provider that has an existing Supervisor and Trainee course or Roles and Responsibility course, you may submit a new course, amend your current Roles and Responsibilities course, continue to offer the Roles and Responsibilities course as specialty credit, or offer both. The Roles and Responsibilities course will not satisfy the requirement for the new Supervisor and Trainee course. Please click the below link review the new course objectives and outline.
