This course is full. 

The role of the generalist appraiser carries perhaps the most difficult responsibilities of any appraiser. Generalists need to know something about everything and also know when to call in an expert. The best generalists have a broad scope of knowledge and a great ability to research.

Led by instructor Gayle Skluzacek, AAA, this program is geared to the appraiser wanting to strengthen his or her proficiency as a generalist and for those who are preparing to take the Household Contents Certification exam. Appraisers with other areas of expertise may also be interested in taking this class to broaden and/or enhance their knowledge base in order to add Household Contents to their repertoire of appraisal skills.

This three-day intensive class will cover areas that a generalist appraiser frequently encounters, including aspects of fine art, antiques, prints, carpets, jewelry, wine and collectibles. The course will also review most areas on the Household Contents Certification Exam. Please note: the certification exam is not part of this class. Those interested should contact Ana-Alicia Siqueiros, Membership Manager, to discuss eligibility and to schedule a date to take the exam.

NOTE: The instructor will email registrants their assignments on Monday, January 12. Assignments will take approximately 10-20 hours of preparation prior to the start of the class, and attendees will present their completed assignments during the course. Participants are required to submit their Power Point presentations to Gayle (via email) by Wednesday, February 4. All attendees will be given a USB drive containing the presentations at the completion of the course.
