‘My Account’ Online Changes to Launch October 1

On October 1, the Appraisal Institute will launch changes to the My Account portion of the organization’s website, which will enhance your online user experience. However, from September 26-30, significant service functionalities will not be available to you, either via the Appraisal Institute website or through contacting staff at the National office. Among the functionalities that will not be available are:

  • Registration for most courses, seminars, and other education events
  • Purchases of textbooks, webinars, and other items in the AI online store
  • Self-service features available in My Account.

From September 26-30, education certificate availability also will be limited.

Access to AI’s public website, online learning features, and access to education transcripts will remain available. Important note: while online learning will be available, if you complete a program between September 26 and October 1, the program completion will not be recorded until after October 1. If you have a license renewal on September 30, you’ll want to complete your program before the end of September 25.
