Renewal applications will be mailed out the first week of March. Because we begin preparing renewals the last week of February, any address change submitted after February 23, 2015 will most likely not be picked up by the renewal and it will mail to the old address. Since our mail does not forward, it will return to the Board office.
Continuing Education: Although each appraiser renews annually, continuing education runs on a two-year cycle. Renewals during even years (2014, 2016, etc.) do not require that you log continuing education. You will simply complete the renewal application and submit it with the renewal fee. Renewals during odd years (2013, 2015, etc.) require that most appraisers log 28 hours of continuing education.
Each education cycle runs from July 1 of each odd year through June 30 of the following odd year. The current education cycle began on July 1, 2013 and will end on June 30, 2015. Keep in mind that continuing education completed after July 1, 2013, but used to meet the 2013 renewal requirement, is not eligible for use in 2015. Also, all continuing education must be completed on or after the original license date in Kansas.
During each two-year education cycle each appraiser is required to complete the 7-hour USPAP Update course as a part of the hours required. The 15-hour tested USPAP course cannot be substituted for the Update course.
Appraiser's licensed in Kansas on or after December 29, 2014 are not required to meet any continuing education in for the 2015 renewal. Appraiser's licensed in Kansas prior to December 29, 2014, but on or after July 1, 2014 are required to meet only 14 hours of continuing education. Of those 14 hours, 7 must be in USPAP update and all 14 hours must have been completed after their original Kansas license date.
