Or. Admin. R. 150-308-0030 - Appraiser Trainee Program

Current through Register Vol. 61, No. 4, April 1, 2022

"Appraiser Trainee Program" provides on the job training for employees in a county assessor's office. Employees in a county assessor's office may be enrolled in the program under the supervision of the county assessor and a Department of Revenue employee. A standardized training program outlining minimum training requirements for all trainees shall be developed by the Department of Revenue. An individualized training program may be prepared for each trainee, depending on their education and work experience.

(1) For the purpose of this rule, "employee" includes, but is not limited to:
(a) Any person filling a position included in the assessor's budget.
(b) Any person for whom the assessor has agreed to provide on the job training and is not in a position included in the assessor's budget i.e. a person referred to the county assessor through a licensed vocational rehabilitation organization.
(2) To be enrolled in the Appraiser Trainee Program, an individual must:
(a) Be currently working a minimum of 20 hours per week in the office of a county assessor or meet the definition of 'employee' as described in (1).
(b) Obtain a written recommendation from the county assessor to be accepted into the training program. The county assessor shall make a written request to the Department of Revenue Training Coordinator, Property Tax Division, to have the employee enrolled in the Appraiser Trainee Program.
(3) Completion or termination of the Appraiser Trainee Program:
(a) Each person enrolled in the Appraiser Trainee Program must complete the requirements of the training plan within two years from the date of enrollment in the program.
(b) The trainee will automatically be terminated from the program upon termination of employment with the county assessor. Upon reemployment with a county assessor, the trainee may request reinstatement. Reinstatement must be approved by the county assessor and the Department of Revenue Training Coordinator. When reinstated, the total participation time in the program may not exceed two years.

Example: Trainee participates in program for eight months then moves from the area and terminates employment. Trainee returns to the area, requests and is granted reinstatement, and resumes the training program. The trainee has one year and four months from the date of reinstatement to complete the requirements of the training program.

The Department of Revenue will determine if the trainee has met the requirements of the program. Upon satisfactory completion, the Department and the assessor of the county will:

(1) Issue a certificate of completion to the trainee.
(2) Issue a Certification of Affidavit to the Department of Administrative Services, Human Resources Services Division.

The Department does not register the trainee as an appraiser. The trainee must take the County Property Appraiser 1 examination administered by the Department of Administrative Services, Human Resources Services Division in order to obtain registration in the State of Oregon.
