Practical Applications in Federal-Aid Highway Program Appraisals is a 7-hour Web-conference Training (WCT) course offered by NHI, the authoritative source in transportation training.

This course helps improve conformity with appraisal requirements of the Uniform Act and implementing requirements of 49 CFR Part 24. Concepts presented NHI-141053 Foundations of Federal-Aid Highway Program Appraisals for specific eminent domain situations are applied to a series of real-world examples. Nuances and State-specific differences related to the application of appraisal concepts and Uniform Act requirements are addressed.

Participants explore examples of problems handled differently than typical mortgage appraisal assignments. The examples demonstrate to appraisers new to Federal-aid programs that their clients have regulatory requirements to not only determine market value of a property, but to also determine an estimate of compensation due a property owner given the unique interpretation of laws in the jurisdiction the appraiser is practicing.

The course is broken into three WCT sessions averaging two hours and 10 minutes each. At the end of each session, participants will complete a web-based, multiple-choice assessment to measure achievement of the learning outcomes.

This course has been certified by the International Distance Education Certification Center (IDECC).


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Determine damages to remainder property in a partial acquisition.
  • Differentiate between appraisal requirements under 49 CFR Part 24 and USPAP.
  • Differentiate between just compensation and the agency's estimate of fair market value.


The target audience for this WCT course includes representatives from Federal Uniform Act Agencies, State Departments of Transportation (DOT), Local Public Agencies (LPAs), consultant/fee appraisers, and FHWA staff involved with the appraisal process that have attended a basic practices and principles of real estate appraisal course.
