The other two courses in the program are Valuation in Challenging Markets and International Financial Reporting Standards for the Real Property Appraiser. In addition, this course satisfies the Appraisal Institute’s Standards of Professional Practice requirement for international Candidates for designation (in addition to Business Practices and Ethics).

By becoming familiar with these standards, valuation professionals who perform international assignments will gain a high level of public trust and confidence, which benefits the real estate valuation profession in the US and overseas.
Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:
• Recognize how IVS provides a common basis for evaluating whether or not a valuer is doing credible work in a given assignment.
• Recognize that IVS is a reference source for those outside the valuation profession and especially those who have little knowledge of valuation practice.
