Maryland Real Estate Appraiser Pre-Licensure

Allegany College of Maryland is pleased to partner with OnCourse/Career WebSchool to provide Real Estate Appraisal Pre-Licensure training. To become a licensed Real Estate Appraiser, candidates must complete 150 hours of coursework that has been approved by the Maryland Real Estate Commission and compile at least 2,000 hours of appraisal work experience under the supervision of a qualified appraiser, over a period of at least two calendar years. The college does not arrange for the work experience or administer the licensing exam. It is highly recommended that potential students arrange to complete their trainee hours with a qualified supervising appraiser prior to enrolling in the first course. For more information on licensing requirements, please contact the Maryland Real Estate Appraiser Commission at or call 410-230-6165.

The OnCourse lessons are completed via the internet using the Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5/6.0 (or higher) web browser on your computer. Each lesson is an interactive tutorial that presents information and asks you questions about what you have read. The interactive learning process monitors your progress and provides feedback as needed to help you learn the material easily. The online real estate appraisal course lessons are designed so you can work at your own pace. It is easy to use and does not require extensive prior experience with computers. Each pre-licensure course includes a final examination which must be taken onsite at ACM or another proctored location approved by OnCourse.
