Before any applicant (registered trainee) may take the national licensing or certification examinations, an upgrade application must be submitted with all required education requirements and experience logs to the Real Estate Appraiser Commission for approval.
Once the experience logs component has been reviewed and approved, applicants will be granted approval to take the national examinations without any further application necessary. If approval is granted, the applicant will be given a maximum of four (4) opportunities in the twelve (12) months after approval is granted to pass the examination. Applicants may not take the exam more than four times in one year. The exam proctor is PSI. Scheduling through PSI is available online. There are also sample exam questions on the PSI bulletin.
