Real Estate Appraiser Information for the State of Alaska

Real estate appraisers are required to be licensed, per Title XI of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act (FIRREA) of 1989.    This act required that each of the states establish an agency for the licensure, certification, and regulation of appraisers.

In Alaska, the Alaska Board of Certified Real Estate Appraisers is in charge of this oversight.

There are three categories of real estate appraiser in the State of Alaska.  These categories are:

  1. Registered Trainee
  2. Certified Residential Appraiser
  3. Certified General Appraiser

Alaska also offers a 180 day Courtesy License for a non-resident who is a certified or credentialed real estate appraiser in another state.

For those considering a career in real estate appraisals, per the Alaska Board of Certified Real Estate Appraisers:

“It is not required to become registered as a Trainee, however, it is recommended that the trainee register with a supervisory appraiser and follow the criteria under that relationship. This is particularly helpful for the trainee to receive full experience credit when applying for certification.”
