Under close supervision, in a training capacity, to appraise real property and to do related work as required.
This classification is found only in the Office of the Assessor.
Positions in this classification are distinguished from those in the next higher class of Appraiser II in that the latter is the journey-level classification in the Appraiser series, in which incumbents perform the full range of residential appraisal duties, including manufactured homes, multiple family residential, and rural real property appraisals under general supervision. Appraisers I receive instruction and perform appraisal duties under close supervision at the trainee level. Newly appointed Appraisers I are assigned to either the Training Officer of the Office of the Assessor or a Supervising Appraiser II and participate in a one-year training program in appraisal theory and practice. This program includes classroom and on-the-job training on replacement cost, market and income approaches to value. The program is intended to assist Appraisers I in their preparation for the appraiser certification test administered by the California State Board of Equalization and to expose them to information which incumbents in the journey-level classification of Appraiser II must understand and employ. Appraisers I are expected to learn the duties of the next-higher classification and to promote to Appraiser II upon completion of the training period.
