Online Education Available to You 24/7
All Appraisal Institute online sessions begin on the 1st and 15th of each month and allow participants up to 30 days to complete the session as rapidly or as slowly as needed. Students may enroll at any time for either the current or an upcoming session

Classes start the 1st and 15th of each month. You can register and begin your class any time after the class start date and before the class end date. Login from anywhere -- work or home. You can go as rapidly or as slowly as needed within a 45-day window.

You do not have to attend at scheduled times -- you work at your pace, not the instructor's pace.

You can work for one hour and then log off and come back three days later and work for another hour or two.
