The Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) of The Appraisal Foundation establishes the minimum education, experience and examination requirements
for real property appraisers to obtain a state certification. The AQB provides appraisers, enforcement officials, users of appraisal services
and the public an illustrated guide on the applicability of the
Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria and Interpretations of the Criteria
The Columbia Institute was founded in 1992 with the mission to provide quality appraisal continuing education at a reasonable cost.
Subsequently, we have expanded our programs to provide real estate education as well, and have begun to offer pre-license/qualifying
courses through Columbia e-Campus.
By the term quality education for CE courses we mean courses that are directly helpful to practitioners in their daily practice by providing
either insight into alternative methods of expanding their practice or information that can make them more productive in their current activities;
for pre-license/qualifying courses we mean courses that will provide a firm foundation for successful career development.
