Ready to take a big step toward designation? Then, please join us next month in Ashburn, VA for Advanced Concepts & Case Studies. The 40-hour Advanced Concepts & Case Studies course implements a blended learning approach, which includes a pre-class, two-hour online session combined with 35 hours of traditional classroom education and wraps up with a three-hour exam on the sixth morning. Ths course will be taught by top-rated instructor, William D. Otto Spence, MAI.

Course Description
This course synthesizes basic and advanced valuation techniques taught in previous courses, and addresses consistent treatment of the three valuation approaches for various valuation problems. Case studies teach participants how to address common but complex appraisal issues, including a leased fee not at market rent, a proposed property, a property in a market not at equilibrium, and a subdivision. The course emphasizes the need to test the reasonableness of conclusion in an appraisal.

Please don't delay. April 1 is the last day to register for and submit the diagnostic test and there are just a few seats left!
