Warren, PA (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
The long slog to become a fully-licensed Certified Appraiser just got easier; the Missouri Real Estate Appraisers Commission recently announced that all types of qualifying education can now be taken completely via online courses. In response, McKissock has developed a full suite of classes that allow appraisers, in any phase of their qualifying education cycle, to take all of their hours online.
As part of rule 20 CSR 2245-6.016, the Missouri Real Estate Commission recently announced a change in their policy to allow all forms of qualifying education to be taken online. This includes the 150 hours needed to become a Licensed Appraiser, or the additional hours required to upgrade to a Certified Residential or Certified General appraiser. Effective immediately, appraisal trainees are no longer limited to the traditional classroom training but instead can opt for online courses which can be completed on their own time. As an IDECC-certified and TAF-approved course provider, McKissock has made available hundreds of hours of original online course content to help appraisers work their way through the license process.
“The standards for becoming a licensed appraiser are high; it requires a lot of dedication and time on the part of the trainee. Allowing online classes as a learning option is a great step towards providing more flexibility and choice in what is a demanding process,” says Matt Eubanks, VP of Appraisal Education at McKissock. McKissock has been offering online qualifying education for appraisers in many other states for the past decade.
In addition to the new online qualifying education courses, the company will continue their decades-long tradition of offering appraisal continuing education courses as well. Since appraisers are required to continually receive training and education throughout their career, McKissock offers a suite of over 130 hours of classes to help them maintain their good standing with the state while advancing their skills through education.
With this announcement, Missouri joins the ranks of 37 other states that allow qualifying education to be fulfilled online.
McKissock is the leading provider of qualifying and continuing education for licensed professionals. Over the past 25 years, the company has created thousands of hours of engaging curriculum that help professional real estate agents, appraisers, and home inspectors advance their careers while meeting their state education requirements. Classes are offered in four different formats so professionals can customize their education to fit their learning styles and schedules.
