Appraising with the values that matter most

The Value of Accreditation

An Accredited Member of ISA has achieved the designation of "qualified appraiser" as defined by the Appraisers Qualification Board of The Appraisal Foundation. Accredited Members have declared a specialty, satisfied the educational requirements and demonstrated significant, appraisal-related experience in that specialty. An ISA accredited member (AM) is bound by a professional code of ethics, operates within specific professional guidelines and maintains a membership in ISA through ongoing education and professional service.
