Board of Appeal and Equalization Training
Online Training for Voting Board Members
By law, at least one voting member of every Board of Appeal and Equalization must have taken the training within four years. We strongly encourage all board members to take this training. Voting members must take the training individually to receive certification.
Training must be completed by February 1 of the year in which the board member will hear appeals. If you're a voting member, submit the reporting form found at the end of the training. We will receive notification and update the list of trained members on our website.
Note: Training taken after February 1 will not qualify for that year's board meetings, even if completed before the meetings.
The training is a self-paced online course. It contains audio with optional closed captioning. The training covers:
- Purpose of the Board
- Role of the Board in the Assessment Process
- Best Practices Recommendations
- Quorum Requirements
- Explanations of Alternative Methods of Appeal
Prepare for the Training
- Allow 45 minutes to complete the training. Your progress will not be saved if you do not finish.
