Education: Submit Application for Accreditation
On completion of all of the above requirements, generally signalled by the successful completion of the Demonstration Appraisal Report, Candidate Members should submit an Application for Accreditation Form, which must be received in the Association office within one year of completion of accreditation requirements. The Association schedules a Candidate Examination (an oral test of knowledge), which is the next-to-last step in the accreditation process after all other requirements are successfully completed.
The Candidate Examination is an interview before a panel of Accredited Members of the Alberta Assessors’ Association. The Candidate must demonstrate an understanding of the Association, its Code of Conduct and Ethics, technical assessment areas, and legislation. Candidates are advised in writing of the date and time of the exam and are given an outline of topic areas to be covered during the exam. When the Association Registrar receives confirmation of a pass on the Candidate Examination, a recommendation is made to the Registration Committee to grant the AMAA designation to those having successfully met all requirements.
The deadline for receipt of an Application for Accreditation is January 31 prior to the next Annual General Meeting of the Association.
Newly Accredited Members will be presented their certificate of Accreditation at the Annual Alberta Assessors’ Association Conference; however, accreditation is effective upon the Registration Committee's acceptance of the application for accreditation.
