(1) Each applicant for the general classification shall have 3,000 hours of appraisal experience obtained over a period of at least 18 months.
(2) At least six hours of real property appraisal experience shall be on an improved property.
(3) At least 1,500 hours of real property appraisal experience shall have been nonresidential appraisal work. For purposes of this regulation, "residential" shall be defined as residential units for one to four families.
(4) Acceptable appraisal experience shall include at least 1,500 experience hours of real property appraisal experience.
(5) Acceptable appraisal experience may include either of the following:
(A) 1,500 experience hours in mass appraisal; or
(B) an aggregate maximum of 750 experience hours in the following appraisal categories:
(i) Real estate consulting;
(ii) review appraisal;
(iii) highest and best use analysis; and
(iv) feasibility analysis study.
(6) Experience hours may be granted for appraisals performed without a traditional client. However, appraisal experience gained from work without a traditional client shall not exceed 50 percent of the total appraisal experience requirement. Practicum courses that are approved by the appraiser qualifications board's course-approval program or by a state appraiser regulatory agency may also be used to meet the requirement for non-traditional client experience. Each practicum course shall include the generally applicable methods of appraisal practice for the general classification. The course content shall include the following:
(A) Requiring the student to produce credible appraisals that utilize an actual subject property;
(B) performing market research containing sales analysis; and
(C) applying and reporting the applicable appraisal approaches in conformity with the uniform standards of professional appraisal practice.

Each practicum course assignment shall require problem-solving skills for a variety of property types for the general classification. Experience credit shall be granted for the actual number of classroom hours of instruction and hours of documented research and analysis as awarded from the practicum course approval process.

(7) For the purposes of this regulation, "traditional client" shall mean a client who hires an appraiser for a business purpose.
(b) All appraisal experience shall be in compliance with the uniform standards of professional appraisal practice (USPAP), as required by K.S.A. 58-4121 and amendments thereto. Each applicant's experience shall be appraisal work conforming to standards 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6, in which the applicant demonstrates proficiency in the appraisal principles, methodology, procedures, and report conclusions.
(c) The real property appraisal experience requirement specified in paragraph (a)(4) shall be met by time involved in the appraisal process. The appraisal process shall consist of the following:
(1) Analyzing factors that affect value;
(2) defining the problem;
(3) gathering and analyzing data;
(4) applying the appropriate analysis and methodology; and
(5) arriving at an opinion and correctly reporting the opinion in compliance with USPAP.
(1) In order for the board to determine whether or not the experience requirements have been met, each applicant shall submit appraisal experience log sheets, in a format prescribed by the board, listing the appraisal reports completed by the applicant within the five-year period preceding the date of application. Each appraisal report shall be signed by the applicant or the preparer of the report who supervised the applicant. If the applicant does not sign the appraisal report, the preparer shall indicate whether or not the applicant provided significant professional assistance in the appraisal process.
(2) Each applicant shall maintain a record of the actual number of hours involved in completing an appraisal. Unless the board approves a greater number of experience hours for a particular appraisal based upon the unusually difficult or complex nature of the appraisal, the maximum number of experience hours for each appraisal shall be in accordance with the board's document titled "experience hours table," which is adopted by reference in K.A.R. 117-2-2.
(3) If an applicant has both supervised experience and unsupervised experience, the applicant shall maintain a separate log of appraisals for each type of experience.

When logging supervised experience, the applicant shall maintain a separate log of appraisals completed with each supervising appraiser. Each page of each supervised experience log shall include the certification number and the signature of that applicant's supervising appraiser, which shall serve as verification of the accuracy of the information.

(e) Upon request of the board, each applicant shall submit at least three appraisal reports selected by the board from the applicant's log sheet and one appraisal report selected by the applicant from the log sheet. The selected appraisal reports shall be reviewed by the board or the board's designee, in accordance with standard rule 3, for competency within the scope of practice of the appraisal work authorized for the general classification, by using the criteria specified in K.S.A. 58-4109(d) and amendments thereto and, in particular, standard rules 1 and 2 of the edition of USPAP in effect when the appraisal was performed. Approval of an applicant's experience hours shall be subject to board approval of the requisite number of experience hours and board approval of the selected appraisal reports.
