Return to your office with greater confidence when making scope of work decisions. Objectives:

  • Understand the evolution of scope of work in USPAP & the level of flexibility it provides in today’s appraisal assignments.
  • Recognize the parameters that define an assignment and know how to identify the client’s problem to be solved.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the numerous ways the appraisal process can be carried out in assignments.
  • Understand why disclosure of the selected scope of work is necessary.
  • Write clear, concise, and accurate scope of work statements for assignments.
  • Understand from examples how a broad variety of services are allowed under USPAP.
