Certificate Program in Real Property Assessment

Sauder School of Business, University of British Columbia

In its efforts to remain on the cutting edge of industry education, the Real Estate Division in cooperation with the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) has developed a program for the professional assessor in Canada. The program covers the fundamental concepts of appraisal, assessment administration, and computer assisted mass appraisal.


The program meets the educational course requirements for the IAAO’s CAE and RES designations. The second year of the program includes the option of completing a case study examination, accepted by the IAAO as meeting one of the demonstration report requirements towards the RES and CAE designations.
