The Nebraska Real Property Appraiser Board has adopted the following policy regarding reciprocal credentials:
On and after August 24, 2006, all applications for obtaining a credential by reciprocity will be forwarded by the Director to the Board for approval. It will be the Board’s policy to review each application and determine if the State in which the applicant resides has similar credentialing requirements as the State of Nebraska. This will be done through an annual review of experience, education, and testing requirements for the State in which the applicant resides. This policy shall supersede any existing agreements for reciprocity which may have been entered into by the Board. This policy shall not apply to existing non-resident credential holders who are seeking renewal of an existing credential through the annual renewal process.
