Press Release (ePRNews.com) - RESTON, Va. - Apr 21, 2017 - The American Society of Appraisers announces the release of its OnDemand 15-Hour Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (“USPAP”) Update course specifically related to business valuation.
USPAP represents the generally accepted and recognized standards of appraisal practice that resulted from the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989. It was created to improve the quality and consistency of appraisal services to better protect the users of those services.
“ASA is dedicated to being the preeminent leader in the appraisal profession,” said Robert B. Morrison, ASA, Past Chair of the Society’s Business Valuation Committee. “Compliance with USPAP is required by ASA for its accredited members. The development of this unique offering not only fills an important need in the marketplace, but also showcases ASA’s commitment to quality appraisal services and delivering best-in-class education for business valuers.”
All business valuers seeking accreditation from ASA are required to complete a USPAP course. ASA-credential seeking business valuers will benefit from the business valuation-specific content and the OnDemand delivery format. The course focuses primarily on the 2016-17 edition of USPAP and standards related specifically to business valuation.
The approximate 15 hours of lecture is presented via ASA’s new OnDemand recording format, which allows busy on-the-go professionals to conveniently access individual course modules from their computer—at their pace, in the convenience of their home, office or other location—saving on out-of-office and travel-related expenses.
Upon completion, certification will be awarded along with 15 hours of continuing education credit towards ASA reaccreditation. CPE credits pending—see course information for details.
