Assessor Certification Renewal Hours
To renew an assessor certification for 2018, Michigan Certified Assessing Officers (MCAO), Michigan Advanced Assessing Officers (MAAO), Michigan Master Assessing Officers (MMAO) and Michigan Certified Assessing Technicians (MCAT) must complete 20 hours of approved continuing education between November 1, 2016 and October 31, 2017. See State Tax Commission Bulletin 10 of 2016.
Certified Assessors may verify their completed continuing education hours that are on file with the State Tax Commission by visiting the 2017 Assessor Completed Continuing Education Report. Assessors are encouraged to ensure they have completed the minimum number of hours well in advance of the October 31, 2017 deadline. Assessing Officers or Technicians who do not fully complete the required 20 hours of continuing education by October 31, 2017 will become uncertified as of December 31, 2017.
Assessors may locate approved courses that may be used in obtaining continuing education hours toward the renewal of their 2018 recertification on the 2017 Approved Continuing Education Course List.
