How to Become a Real Estate Appraiser in North Carolina

The North Carolina Appraiser Board certifies, licenses and registers real estate appraisers to perform real estate appraisals. You must get the Trainee Appraiser License to obtain the experience hours that qualify you to take the test for licensed, certified, and certified general licenses. The required time to gain experience hours for licensing is 24 months, which is the same for certification and among the highest. An applicant to become a trainee must take the supervisor/trainee course before the application will be granted.
