Real Estate Appraisers

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due date for completion of Continuing Education (CE) has changed.  All CE must be completed by January 31, 2024.

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 (3hrs)
  • 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.

To upgrade to Certified Residential or Certified General you must meet the AQB 2018 criteria.  Connecticut has not yet adopted PAREA.  

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