Starting July 1, 2013, all real estate appraiser trainees will be required to complete continuing education before renewing their Real Estate Appraiser Trainee Registration.

  • You may still renew your trainee registration up to 120 days before it expires (RCW 18.140.130).

Renewal notices

Notices are mailed about 3 months before the expiration date. If you’ve moved or didn’t receive a notice, please contact us.

How long it will take to get my new license?

You should get it in 3–4 weeks.

To avoid being removed from lenders’ lists or other inconveniences, we recommend you renew early. You may renew up to 120 days before the expiration.
