Real Estate Appraiser Information for the State of North Dakota

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 North Dakota, the North Dakota Real Estate Appraiser Qualifications and Ethics Board is in charge of this oversight.

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

  1. Apprentice Appraiser (Trainee)
  2. Licensed Appraiser
  3. Certified Residential Appraiser
  4. Certified General Appraiser

Those new to a career in real estate appraisals must begin as a Apprentice Appraiser (Trainee).  There is no experience required.  However, it is necessary to complete the state required coursework to become a Apprentice Appraiser.  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.
