Real Estate Appraiser Information for the State of Arkansas

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 Arkansas, the Arkansas Appraiser Licensing & Certification Board (ALCB) is in charge of this oversight.

There are four classifications of real estate appraiser in the State of Arkansas.  These classifications are:

  1. State Registered (Trainee)
  2. State Licensed
  3. Certified Residential
  4. Certified General

Those new to a career in real estate appraisals must begin as a State Registered trainee.  There is no experience required.  However, it is necessary to complete the state required coursework to become a Stated Registered trainee.  The trainee must then work under a supervisor for a specified number of hours in order to be eligible to become a licensed or certified appraiser.
