The American Society of Appraisers (ASA) and JSSI Advisory Services will offer an online continuing education initiative for aircraft appraisers, lenders, insurers and maintenance professionals.
The four-part virtual series is tailored to the needs of professionals involved in the aircraft inspection and appraisal process, covering topics such as hard-time and on-condition engines, desktop appraisals, quantifying diminution in value, and the latest updates to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). Successful completion of all four courses will earn attendees up to eight hours of ASA continuing education credits.
“JSSI’s team of in-house appraisers are all accredited by ASA to ensure a fair evaluation and price for any aircraft purchase. With this new training series, we’re proud to further strengthen that relationship and share decades of industry knowledge and expertise with the appraisal community,” George Kleros, senior vice president of strategic event management and fleet support at Jet Support Services (JSSI), said.
Kleros will open the virtual series with a review of gas turbine engines and inspection thresholds, including requirements for continued airworthiness. Participants also will review hard-time and on-condition engine requirements and investigate corrosion issues. Each two-hour session will include 90 minutes of online teaching followed by 30 minutes of open discussion.
“We are looking forward to partnering with JSSI in delivering these impactful virtual programs to the aircraft profession as it will help in elevating the knowledge and skills for all that are in the profession,” Johnnie White, CEO of the American Society of Appraisers, said.
The first course in the series will take place Tuesday, Oc. 27, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET. Subsequent courses are scheduled on Nov. 17, Dec. 3 and Dec. 18. The series is available to both ASA members and nonmembers with discounts available to members and those who register for the complete series in advance.
