Real Estate Appraisers

Due to current events, it is highly recommended that applications with an apply online link, reinstatements and renewals be submitted online.  Our ability to receive and process mailed applications and payments will be significantly delayed. Should you need to apply for a new appraiser license, please email dcp.licenseservices@ct.gov for instructions. 

Real estate appraisers require a license from the Department of Consumer Protection. Please note that there are several different appraisal licenses.  

Provisional Appraiser Requirements:

All provisional appraisers & their sponsor(s) must complete a course in supervisor/provisional education. There are currently 2 courses approved that meet this requirement. They are:

  • Mandatory CT Appraisal Law with Supervisor / Provisional Education (4hrs)
  • Supervisor/Trainee Education course (4hrs)

In addition, supervisors must be a certified appraiser for a minimum of 3 years with no disciplinary action in past 3 years that would prevent them from supervising a provisional appraiser.

Provisional Appraisers are required to complete at least 1 pre-licensing course each continuing education cycle.  The pre-licensing course will also count as part of your required continuing education.

CT's requirement to upgrade to Certified Residential or Certified General remain in effect, including the requirement to have a bachelor's degree or higher.  

Please review the license applications below and select the appropriate category.
