When does FHA require a Roster Appraiser to complete remedial education?

FHA may require an Appraiser to take remedial education on appraisal-related topics for failure to comply with the requirements outlined in Handbook 4000.1.
Cause for remedial education includes, but is not limited to, identification of more serious deficiencies in the appraisal report that indicate lack of competence, including incomplete data collection or support for analysis and conclusions.
FHA will provide the Appraiser with written notice of the required remedial education that identifies the ground for the requirement.  Remedial education is not a sanction and no appeal is available.
The Appraiser must complete remedial education within 60 Days of the date of notification and provide proof of successful completion. Failure to comply with a remedial education action may result in escalation of the action to an administrative sanction, including removal from the FHA Appraiser Roster.
