Hi! I'm considering becoming a trainee appraiser in New Jersey. I'm concerned what would happen if I have to leave my supervising appraiser, for one reason or another, before I'm able to accumulate needed hours to qualify for a certified appraiser. Can I accumulate trainee hours from different supervising appraisers, or do I have to start over all again if I make the switch (which I would hate to do, naturally).

Thanks for any answers and advice you can provide to me!

In NY and CT you can move from supervisor to supervisor- you just need to keep good records and get the supervisor to sign off on your log. Not sure about NJ- it's probably very similar -check with licensing authority in NJ>

From what I understand, you should be allowed to have more than one supervisor. Some states would require you to specify who is the primary supervisor and secondary. But I think they might have to be in the same company. The best is to check with the New Jersey Real Estate Appraisers Board.

Also, if you are switching to another supervisor, be prepared your next supervisor would ask why you would want to do that.

Here's a post on becoming a appraiser in New Jersey. Hope this would be helpful.
