Thinking About Becoming a Property
Appraiser in Oregon?

That’s great! Property Appraisers are in high demand, and the field is always advancing.

Start your Property Appraisal in 2 Easy Steps

1 Take Required Coursework to Become an Appraiser Assistant.

  • Because a full license requires some experience in the field, students usually start by taking 75 hours of coursework, plus a 4-hour, Board-approved Supervising Appraiser/Appraiser Assistant Training Course. Once you pass this initial test, you are an Appraiser Assistant or “appraiser trainee”, and can move on to the next step.

2 Complete Oregon’s Required Work Experience

In Oregon, you must complete “apprenticeship” hours in the field under the mentorship of an established licensed Appraiser. Since there are different levels of certification, there are different requirements in terms of the experience hours required.

  • Licensed Appraiser - 2000 hours in no less than 12 months
  • Certified Residential Appraiser – 2500 hours in no less than 24 months
  • Certified General Appraiser – 3000 hours in no less than 30 months, with at least 1500 hours of experience in non-residential appraisals
