ASC CLEAR Educational Programming

Thank you for your interest in the educational programs co-developed by the Appraisal Subcommittee (ASC) and the Council on Licensure, Enforcement & Regulation (CLEAR). 

The “Appraiser & AMC Investigations: Basic” (or “AAI: Basic”) course is a ten-lesson asynchronous course designed for appraiser & AMC regulatory investigators. This program is also useful for board executives responsible for analyzing complaints and board staff who wish to gain a greater appreciation of the skill level and work involved in investigations and inspections. This program consists of self-study content in an online environment.  The ten “lessons” that comprise the course are on the following topics: Professional Conduct; Principles of Administrative Law; the Investigative Process; Principles of Evidence; Evidence Collection, Tagging, and Storage; Interviewing Techniques; Investigator Safety; Inspection Procedures; Report Writing; and Testifying in Administrative Proceedings.

 The “Introduction To Appraiser & AMC Regulation” (or “Intro to AAR”) course is a five-lesson asynchronous course designed for new appraiser regulatory board members or anyone wanting to learn more about the appraiser regulatory process and the duties of regulatory board members.  This program also consists of self-study content in an online environment.  The five “lessons” that comprise this course are on the following topics: Regulation; the Role of a Board Member; the Role of Staff; Responsibilities of a Board Member; Ethics; and an overview of the Appraiser Regulatory Structure.

“Are You Ready for Your Compliance Review -- A Conversation with Your Policy Managers” was a well-received panel discussion at the 2022 AARO Fall Conference.  It has now been updated with a new version moderated by CLEAR’s David Byerman. This video features ASC Policy Managers Jenny Tidwell, Maria Brown, Kristi Klamet, and Tom Lewis in a panel discussion about the ASC Policy Statements. This is recommended viewing for anyone preparing for an upcoming Compliance Review, or anyone who just wants to know more about ASC’s policy statements and how appraisal regulation works.
