Relocation of Board Office
The Board Office relocated in early March to 405 Capitol Street, Suite 906, Charleston, WV 25301. The building was formerly the Daniel Boone Hotel. Our phone number, fax, email and website address will remain the same.
Parking is available using short-term street meters, or in nearby public lots and City of Charleston Municipal Parking Buildings.
WV Law Class Required for 2015-2016 License Renewal
The three (3) hour WV Law Course has been discussed in the past several years in letters, post-cards and on the web-site. However, the upcoming 2015-2016 renewal cycle is the first year that all licensees and apprentices must take the course. The course must be taken every four (4) years and is in addition to the required 14 hours of regular CE. McKissock offers the course on-line and is the only approved provider at this time. The course is offered on-line course because over 34% of WV licensees are non-residents.
Reminder of New Rules Effecting Your Profession
During the rush to upgrade prior to 2015's AQB mandated changes, the Board learned that at least a few licensees had not kept up with the rules legislating the appraisal profession. Changes to Title 190, Series 2 and Title 190, Series 3 went into effect July 1, 2014. These changes included the number of hours and types of experience hours required for upgrades, time limits for holding an inactive license, the requirements for a WV Law Course and others.
Effective January 1, 2015, apprentices must take an AQB-Approved Supervisor-Apprentice Course and WV Law Course prior to being issued an apprentice permit. Also, supervisors must take the AQB-Approved Supervisor-Apprentice Course prior to supervising the Apprentice. No experience hours will be granted prior to both parties taking this course.
The Rules and Laws can be found on the left-hand side of this website.
