Do you need to verify IACP certification status on an individual before entrusting them with a certified auto appraisal?

This feature allows you to verify current status of certification for an individual certified by the Bureau of Certified Auto Appraisers - IACP. You need to know their full name in order to perform the search.

Alternatively, you may enter the certification number below. This number can be found on the wall certificate produced by the appraiser. The search will return the certification number, a name, current status and an expiration date for that individual.

BOCAA strives to maintain accurate, reliable, and current information on certification. However, inadvertent mistakes may exist in our database. If you discover an apparent mistake or discrepancy, please contact the Independent Appraisers Certification Program department immediately at 1-877-424-8560.


Search by first name, last name or IACP certification number.

BOCAA strongly suggests that the certification identity be verified with a government issued photo identification card, such as a driver's license.
