Education Information for Providers

This page is for education providers (schools). Here, we notify you of recent rule changes, help you locate TALCB forms and other documents an education provider needs, and point you to the most relevant provider-related pages.

Please inform students who are seeking an appraiser license or certification that changes to the Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria will become effective January 1, 2015. These changes represent minimal national requirements that each state must implement. Please note that effective January 1, 2015, applicants for a Certified General or Certified Residential appraiser license must have a four-year college degree. For more information and a full list of changes please go to the Appraisal Subcommittee’s website at or the Foundation Appraisal's website at A summary of changes is also provided under Hot Topics.

If you are NOT an education provider (school), the Education Main Page can direct you to education information for appraisers and appraiser trainees.

Forms for Providers

Effective January 1, 2015, both the Appraiser Trainee and eligible sponsoring appraiser will be required to complete a course that complies with the specifications for course content established by the Appraisal Qualifications Board (AQB). This course must be completed by the Appraiser Trainee prior to obtaining an Appraiser Trainee license. Sponsors must complete this course prior to sponsoring a trainee. An Appraiser Trainee & Sponsor Course approval form is available below for providers who want to develop or offer this course.

The following forms may be used by current TALCB education providers, and any education provider desiring to have one or more course offerings approved by the TALCB as acceptable Appraiser Continuing Education courses.
