What classes do I need to take to obtain a Real Estate Appraiser's license in California?

West Valley College's current Appraisal courses satisfy most of the educational requirements needed to obtain a Real Estate Appraiser's license in California. However, the California Office of Real Estate Appraisal (OREA) is in the midst of substantially revising the educational requirements required to obtain an Appraiser's license in California. These new educational requirements will become effective as of January 1, 2008. Accordingly, West Valley College will be revising its Appraisal curriculum to meet these new requirements effective as of January 1, 2008. Until January 1, 2008, West Valley College's current Appraisal offerings still satisfy the OREA education requirements for an Appraiser's license. For the most up-to-date information on these new educational standards, please consult the OREA website.

Are West Valley's classes appropriate for someone who is not seeking to obtain a license?

Absolutely. While the majority of students taking our classes are interested in obtaining a real estate or appraiser's license, we design our courses to be rewarding and informative for those individuals seeking further knowledge about real estate and/or appraisal generally.
