Yes, there are other Equipment Appraiser training courses but we pride ourselves on our hands on approach with real life examples, techniques, and information, all while delivering an interactive online training course!  After all, who would want to sit on a computer attending a "virtual" training that did not allow for you to ask questions and hear real life examples you can apply and learn from.  This aspect to training is unique and allows you to achieve success since we are with you and ready to help whenever you need it!

Did you know that you don't need to know ANYTHING about equipment?  An Equipment Appraiser does not inspect the equipment to find out that it works.  We provide through the Section 1 course how to work with a host to garner ALL the information you'll need to determine a defensible estimate of value.

Did you know that just ONE Certified Equipment Appraisal can bring in anywhere from $1,000 up to $283,000 PER appraisal?  How many can you do in a month?  Remember ... It is your choice what to charge for an appraisal, when to conduct the appraisal, when to write the report, and deliver the report!  Just know, IEV is there to assist you every step of the way!  Plus, our resources and exclusive IEV Appraisal Report Generator makes writing the report seamless so you do not need to re-invent the wheel and waste your time.

We've got what it takes to provide you with comprehensive  education you need to become a professionally credible Equipment Certified Appraiser (ECA).  We have over a combined 35 years of experience appraising all types of equipment in nearly every industry for lenders, CPAs, attorneys, business owners, courts, and others.

Since valuing equipment is a special type of appraisal, we have found that breaking the course down into two comprehensive Sections is advantageous for the new equipment appraiser.   

Section 1 provides our Member with the instruction to grasp the core principals of equipment appraisal.  You will learn the core ethics of USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice), how to efficiently and effectively market equipment appraisal to our target markets and collect the needed data and much, much more!  Collection of data is the backbone of a certified appraisal and must be conducted with precision. 

Section 2 is taken when the Member has demonstrated comprehensive data collection and feels comfortable with the knowledge and steps provided in Section 1.  Now, the Member is ready to learn how to conduct intensive research to determine value based on the approaches to value and levels of trade.  Finally, the Member is taught how to write a USPAP compliant appraisal report using the IEV Appraisal Report Generator.  And here's the best news ... the Generator is included in your training fee!  You will be provided with everything you need to deliver a machinery and equipment defensible estimate of value that withstands scrutiny. 

Remember...We're With You EVERY Step Of The Way
