In order to retain the certification you must meet the continuing education requirement. Each January, letters will be sent to those certified appraisers that need to attend a WSATA course the following year in order to fulfill the continuing education requirement and retain certification. In the event that a certified appraiser fails to attend a WSATA Course, their certification will become inactive and it will be necessary to attend a course by the end of the fourth year to avoid having to resubmit an application. If not, you must attend course 101, pass the test, and resubmit your application for certification along with the $50 application fee.
