2017 Personal Property Summer Camp Recap

72 purchaseFor the fifth year running, the Personal Property discipline of the American Society of Appraisers partnered again this summer with Purchase College, SUNY, to offer an accelerated education program for appraisers that was held on June 3-18, 2017. This intensive “Summer Camp” enabled students to earn their Purchase College Certificate in Appraisal Studies in just over two weeks. The program is designed to provide participants with the foundation needed to be professional Personal Property appraisers.

The 2017 Summer Appraisal Camp included all four core Principle of Valuation (POV) courses that ASA-designated appraisers must complete: Introduction to Personal Property Valuation (PG201), Development of a Personal Property Appraisal: Research & Analysis (PP202), Communication of a Personal Property Appraisal: Report Writing (PP203), and Personal Property Valuation: The Legal & Regulatory Environment (PG204) taught by knowledgeable Personal Property instructors Edie Yeomans, FASA, Fran Zeman, FASA, and Sandra Tropper, ASA. These four courses of the program are the first step to becoming an ASA accredited appraiser.

What attendees had to say:

“As someone abut to re-enter the work force, Edie gave me the confidence that my work will contribute to my ability to succeed as an appraiser.”

“Fran was terrific! She was very knowledgeable, professional, and pleasant. We were lucky to learn from her.”

“Sandie was an excellent instructor, extremely knowledgeable, candid, helpful and very responsive to the different levels of experience.”

The Summer Camp at SUNY Purchase is just one example of the high-quality, professional-level education that ASA provides. If you missed this year’s Summer Camp opportunity, ASA offers Introduction to Personal Property Valuation (PG201), the first of the Personal Property POV courses, in an OnDemand format. Communication of a Personal Property Appraisal: Report Writing (PP203) will be offered at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt) on September 14-17, 2017 in Boston, Massachusetts. Personal Property Valuation – The Legal and Regulatory Environment (PG204) will also be held at MassArt on October 26-29, 2017.

A rare offering of the Personal Property Appraisal Report Writing Update course (PP445) will take place at the Hilton Americas in Houston, Texas, on October 5, 2017, prior to the 2017 International Appraisers Conference (October 7-10, 2017, same location).
