What is GPPA?
The National Auctioneers Association created the Graduate Personal Property Appraiser (GPPA) professional designation to provide Auctioneers with custom education that enhances their appraisal skills and knowledge. The GPPA program teaches students the responsibilities of being an appraiser and provides them advanced training in Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) guidelines.
What is USPAP ?
The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) are the generally accepted standards for professional appraisal practice in North America. The Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989 recognizes USPAP as the generally accepted appraisal standards and requires USPAP compliance for appraisers in federally related transactions. State Appraiser Certification and Licensing Boards; federal, state, and local agencies, appraisal services; and appraisal trade associations require compliance with USPAP.
