If you have any additional questions, please email us at PACountiesTraining@pacounties.org.

TRAINING INFORMATION
 

This training program for all board of assessment appeal/revision, exemption and auxiliary board members will satisfy the requirements of Act 155 of 2018 which requires all members of these boards to complete training to continue to hear county property tax assessment appeals.

  • All individuals who serve on a board as of January 1, 2020 must complete their respective training modules by June 30, 2020.
  • Anyone appointed to a board after January 1, 2020 will have six months from the time of their appointment to complete the training.
  • Any board member who currently holds an active CPE license is exempt from completing this training. Please supply your AV number to the chief assessor in your county.
  • Any board member who holds an inactive CPE license is exempt from completing Module 1. The county chief assessor will need to verify the license with the PA State Board of Certified Real Estate Appraisers.
  • Having multiple board members view the classes as a group along with a member of the county assessment office via webinar is a valid way to take the classes. We suggest that the chief assessor register board members taking the online on demand classes and submit one check. The chief assessor will then verify that all members of the group have successfully watched the entire class. Completion certificates will be issued by CCAP to the county assessment office.
  • CCAP will contact each county chief assessor with a list of members who have completed training modules. The county assessment office will be responsible for making sure that each board of assessment appeal/revision, exemption and auxiliary board member completes the necessary training before the June 30 deadline.
