Requirements - Three Separate Components for each license
Each type of certification has three separate components that must be satisfied.  They are:  Education, Experience and Examination.  These requirements will vary depending on which type of license you choose to obtain, and on how quickly you complete each component.

General Information
An applicant must be at least 18 years of age. candidates must be a citizen of the United States, or a legal resident alien. A license applicant may be subject to a background check, including fingerprinting. Representations may be checked against local, state and federal records. Conviction of a serious felony or serious civil judgments could cause a license or certificate to be denied. The school does not make this determination; for more information, contact the Arizona Board of Appraisal. *Minimum class sizes are required in order for classes to run.
