The National Auctioneers Association created the Graduate Personal Property Appraiser (GPPA) professional designation to provide Auctioneers with custom education that enhances their appraisal skills and knowledge. The GPPA program teaches students the responsibilities of being an appraiser and provides them advanced training in Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) guidelines.
The Appraisal Foundation of the United States recognizes the GPPA designation as one of only a very few that meet their credentialing criteria in the US. Those individuals holding a current GPPA will not have to meet the new 2012 credentialing requirements (including obtaining a Bachelor’s degree) the Foundation has set forth.
The Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989 recognizes USPAP as the generally accepted appraisal standards and requires USPAP compliance for appraisers in federally related transactions. State Appraiser Certification and Licensing Boards; federal, state, and local agencies, appraisal services; and appraisal trade associations require compliance with USPAP.
