Want a job that combines responsibility and freedom with a great earning potential? Real Estate appraisers, often referred to as the "eyes and ears of lenders," can make six figures with the right education and experience. Not looking for a 9-5 in an office? A career in appraisal allows you to be your own boss and set your own work hours—making it a very family-friendly career. There's also a moderate level of job security in being an appraiser as even when the housing market is down, appraisals are still needed for foreclosures and short-sells. We offer courses to help you attain success at all levels of your career—from qualifying to continuing education.
