Real Estate Appraisers

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.
