Continuing Education

To provide the best possible service to Indiana taxpayers, the Department conducts a mandatory continuing education program to ensure assessing officials across the state receive and remain up to date in assessment information. For more information about the statutory requirements for the Assessor-Appraiser Examination and Certification, see IC 6-1.1-35.5.

Continuing Education Requirements

Level I Assessor-Appraisers are required to earn 30 hours of continuing education credits during a two-year cycle following initial certification and every two years thereafter.

Level II and Level III Assessor-Appraisers are required to earn 45 hours of continuing education credits during a two-year cycle following initial certification and every two years thereafter. Once a two-year cycle is completed and certification requirements are met, a new cycle begins January 1.

Upcoming Classes

The Department has contracted with Briljent to provide the registration and instruction of the quarterly continuing education classes. Your Registrars for classes are Kasia Forsyth and Lynn Paquin. You can contact them via e-mail at registrar@ind-pace.com.

Tracking Continuing Education

The Department tracks the continuing education credit hours for all individuals who hold a Level I, Level II, or Level III Assessor-Appraiser certification. Individuals interested in a current list of their individual continuing education credits can e-mail a request to Donna Bratcher at dbratcher@dlgf.in.gov.

Assessors should maintain a current address on file with the Department to ensure continuing education updates are received in a timely manner. Assessors should advise the Department of any change in address (home and business), telephone numbers and any name changes. Changes can be reported to Donna Bratcher at dbratcher@dlgf.in.gov.

If continuing education requirements are not met, as a Level I, Level II, or Level III Assessor-Appraiser, disciplinary proceedings according to 50 IAC 15-3-5 may commence. Assessor-Appraiser certifications will be revoked and, if revoked, assessors will be required to retest to regain certification.
