The University of Georgia, in partnership with the American Society of Appraisers, offering the Personal Property Appraisal Certificate Program.
The program covers comprehensive personal property valuation in fine arts, antiques, and more. This four-course, sequenced series is offered in Nov. 2006, Feb. March and May 2006 and will be held at the Georgia Gwinnett College, 1000 University Center Lane, Lawrenceville, Ga.
A few select universities around the country offer this appraisal program. The success of the “Antiques Roadshow” and “At the Auction” television shows is evidence of the growth in interest in antiques, heirlooms, art, and collectibles, according to course organizers.
This class is designed for art dealers; estate liquidators; insurance adjusters; bank trust officers; art gallery staff; museum staff; docents/volunteers; appraisers of residential contents, gems, and jewelry; and anyone interested in personal property appraising as a career.
After successful completion of the four courses, students earn a Certificate of Completion and University of Georgia continuing education units and are eligible for eventual membership in ASA.
The courses can be viewed at www.gactr.uga.edu/is/appraisal.
