Appraisal Board rules require that apprentices and licensees must take the 2020-2021 version of the 7-hour USPAP update by August 30, 2020 in order to renew your credential. If you fail to take the course by that date, you will not be allowed to renew until you take the course, which may result in a late fee. The course is awarded seven (7) hours of the required 14 hours of CE.

The WV Real Estate Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (WVREALCB) is taking the health and well-being of its staff, board members, and licensees very seriously.

Board staff is complying with Governor Justice’s and the CDC’s recommendations. As always, we will do our best to process applications and/or Board-related matters quickly.

The office is presently closed to walk-ins. To make an appointment to come into the office, please call the WVREALCB office at 304.558.3919. Thank you.
