Louisiana Real Estate Appraisers Board

Due to an Appraisal Subcommittee requirement, the LREAB will be auditing the education records of all appraisers renewing their certification this year. All renewing appraisers must have earned 28 hours of continuing education credit, including the “7-hour USPAP Update” course, within the two-year renewal cycle. This education requirement must be completed to ensure timely renewal.

Courses completed to satisfy real estate license CE requirements will likely not count toward your appraisal CE requirement. It is mandatory for all renewing appraisers to send course completion certificates for all required education to the LREAB via email to appraiserCEaudit@lreab.gov or mail to 9071 Interline Avenue, Baton Rouge, LA 70809.
