Welcome to Joel Ward Seminars


IMPORTANT NOTICE:  According to IDFPR, the deadline for the completion of the 28-hour CE requirement has been moved up to June 30, 2017 from September 30, 2017.

Joel believes that every successful continuing education class must provide an educational experience which is worth both your time and money. He therefore strives to make each one of his classes meet this goal. Each of Joel’s classes is designed to address practical problems appraisers deal with every day. And, since Joel is an active appraiser, he understands that course content must be continually updated to keep pace with changes in the profession.

In the classroom, Joel is not only able to provide examples drawn from his own appraisal experience, but also from his experience as a member of the Real Estate Appraisal Administration and Disciplinary Board. As a member, Joel has firsthand knowledge of the sort of appraisal development and reporting deficiencies which can give rise to complaints. Joel’s students benefit from his practical advice concerning ways to ensure that their appraisals are USPAP compliant.

Here is what Joel’s students have to say:

“I thought Joel did an excellent job of keeping me interested in a not so interesting topic.”

“Very knowledgeable and encouraged class participation.”

“Very informative as usual. Helps make me a better appraiser.”
