We offer an Appraiser & Umpire Class and Examination for Certification, available at various events throughout the year in a controlled setting. There are several upcoming events that will provide certification opportunities. Registration costs vary by location, typically ranging from $295 to $495. The online test has no extra charge, but participants must have a mobile device, like a tablet or laptop, with 1-2 hours of battery life. Events typically begin at 8 am and conclude by 5 pm.

Those who take and pass the examination will be offered the opportunity to join our organization (membership subject to IAUA Board Approval) and obtain the designation of IAUA “Certified Property Insurance Appraiser (CPIA), or IAUA “Certified Property Insurance Umpire (CPIU).” You will then be awarded the actual “Certificate” and be listed as an IAUA Member with that designation in our Certified Directory. If you have completed and passed BOTH examinations and are an IAUA member in good standing, you will be awarded the designation of “Certified Property Appraiser and Umpire (CPAU).”

We are finalizing several events; the schedule is below. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to receive updates as event registrations are opened up.
