Universal Citation: MS Code § 73-34-33 (2018)
  • (1) As a prerequisite to renewal of license, an active status licensed appraiser shall present evidence satisfactory to the board that such appraiser has met the continuing education requirements of this section. The basic continuing education requirement for renewal of a license shall be completed by the applicant, during the immediately preceding term of licensure, of not less than twenty (20) classroom hours of instruction in courses or seminars which have received the approval of the board. Inactive status licensees are not required to meet the continuing education requirements specified in this section; however, such inactive licensees, before activating their license to active status, shall cumulatively meet the requirements missed during the period their license was inactive.

  • (2) In lieu of meeting the requirements set forth above, an applicant for renewal may satisfy all or part of the requirements by presenting evidence of the following:

    • (a) Completion of an educational program of study determined by the board to be equivalent, for continuing education purposes, to courses or seminars approved by the board; or

    • (b) Participation, other than as a student, in educational processes and programs approved by the board which relate to real property appraisal theory, practices or techniques, including, but not necessarily limited to, teaching, program development and preparation of textbooks, monographs, articles and other instructional materials.

  • (3) The board shall develop regulations for the implementation of the provisions of this section to ensure that an individual who renews his license as a licensed appraiser or as a licensed certified real estate appraiser under this chapter has a working knowledge of current real estate appraisal theories, practices and techniques that will enable him to provide competent real estate appraisal services to the members of the public with whom he deals in a professional relationship under the authority of his licensure. The regulations developed by the board shall prescribe the following:

    • (a) Policies and procedures to be followed in obtaining board approval of courses of instruction and seminars;

    • (b) Standards, policies and procedures to be used by the board in evaluating an applicant’s claims of equivalency; and

    • (c) Standards, monitoring methods, and systems for recording attendance to be employed by course and seminar sponsors as a prerequisite to board approval of courses and seminars for credit.

    • In developing and proposing regulations under this section, the board shall give consideration to courses of instruction, seminars and other appraisal education programs developed by or under the authority of organizations or associations of professional real estate appraisers which are utilized by such organizations or associations for the purpose of awarding real estate appraisal designations or indicating compliance with the continuing education requirements of such organizations or associations.

  • (4) No amendment or repeal of a regulation adopted by the board pursuant to this section shall operate to deprive a licensed appraiser or licensed certified real estate appraiser of credit toward renewal of such appraiser’s license for any course of instruction or seminar that had been completed by such individual prior to the amendment or repeal of the regulation.
