WARREN, PA (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
McKissock, the leading provider in online professional education, recently unveiled a new Pay-As-You-Learn plan for appraisers who want to upgrade their license. This is the first of its kind in the professional appraisal continuing education industry. Rather than paying for the entire course package up front, appraisers will have the option to spread out the cost of their classes over four month increments, easing the initial out-of-pocket cost significantly.
The Pay-As-You-Learn plan is available on all multi-class packages. It is not a financing option, has no extra fees and does not require a credit application. “The price you pay at the end of four months is the same you’d pay upfront under the old plan,” Product Director for Appraisal at McKissock Emily Onuffer said. “We started this Pay-As-You-Learn option to better align the course cost with the student’s learning experience.”
“There’s no getting around it; earning an advanced appraiser’s license is a long and expensive endeavor,” McKissock’s Vice President of Marketing Kamie Kennedy said. “We wanted to give our students the most convenient options to afford the education they need to succeed in a competitive market.”
Depending on their state requirements, the upgrade packages covered by the new payment plan include a number of qualifying education courses that may also count towards an appraiser’s continuing education quota. “Bundling these classes together is the fastest, most affordable way to get an appraisal student on their way to making full commissions,” Onuffer said. “In the long run, it’s a more efficient use of the student’s time and money.”
Course packages to upgrade from appraisal trainees to Licensed, Certified Residential or Certified General appraisers are now available with the Pay-As-You-Learn plan for 37 states and the District of Columbia.
Those looking to enter the appraisal industry for the first time as a trainee may also purchase qualifying education packages with the new payment plan.
