McKissock Learning Launches New Appraisal Courses

McKissock Learning Launches New Appraisal Courses Specifically for Banking and Lending Professionals Called Banking Suite

Experts in Valuation Education Aim to Assist Lenders in Understanding Best Practices for an Appraisal Review Operation

ST. LOUIS, MO — McKissock Learning, the leading national provider of online education for licensed appraisers, announced today the launch of its new Banking Suite – innovative online education courses for banking and lending professionals.

“There’s often a knowledge gap between real estate appraisal reports and how these reports are used within banks and lending institutions,” said Adrian Allen, Program Manager for Appraisal at McKissock Learning. “We’re bridging that gap with these courses, the first of their kind in the industry. We’ve spent decades educating the real estate appraisal community and are leveraging this expertise and our internal knowledge of the mortgage lending process to design new courses. The courses will aid banking and lending professionals in mitigating valuation risk, staying compliant, and improving bank examination scores by enhancing the safety and soundness of their real estate valuation programs.”

The first six Banking Suite courses will provide lenders and regulators with the knowledge to better evaluate an appraisal report for USPAP compliance, highlight best practices for a regulatory-compliant appraisal review operation, emphasize the mechanics of appraisal review – specifically focusing on how to assess the credibility of a single family appraisal report, sort through and identify the right valuation service, and fully understand the Uniform Residential Appraisal Report.
