Andrew Bryant Earns ASA Designationby Bryant Asset Advisors on 05/29/13
Andrew J. Bryant was recently awarded his ASA designation by the American Society of Appraisers.
The American Society of Appraisers is an international organization of appraisal professionals and others interested in the appraisal profession. ASA is the oldest and only major appraisal organization representing all of the disciplines of appraisal specialists.
The American Society of Appraisers (ASA) confers two designations upon qualified candidates – the Accredited Member (AM) designation and the more prestigious Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) designation.
To qualify for Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) status, an individual must have substantial full-time appraisal experience, and a four-year college degree (or its equivalent). Most ASA disciplines also require the Candidate to pass a set of four (4) Principles of Valuation courses, which lay the foundation for the remainder of the accreditation process. In addition, candidates must pass a comprehensive exam before a designation is awarded to evaluate the technical appraisal proficiency of the Candidate and their acquaintance with the society's ethics, principles and basic precepts. The submission of demonstration appraisal reports is also a significant factor in the evaluation of the total accreditation application and should support and define the experience, education and appraisal qualifications of each applicant.
Accreditation is awarded to those candidates who demonstrate proficiency in performing complex appraisal assignments. ASA's International Board of Examiners issues a final decision on all accreditation applications after all factors (experience, education, examination and appraisal reports) have been considered.
