Assessment Certification & Education Program

The Division of Property Assessments (DPA) administers the Assessment Certification and Education Program on behalf of the State Board of Equalization (SBE), providing educational opportunities in the field of property tax assessments and recognition of accumulated training and experience for property tax professionals.

Assessment training through the program is available to any person demonstrating the potential and commitment to learn. Participation in the education program does not entitle the applicant to participate in the assessment certification program.

The assessment certification portion of the program is reserved for the assessment staff of Tennessee state, county and municipal government agencies with property tax assessment responsibilities.

If you are interested in participating in the education program, look at the 2017 Training Calendar for specific information. If you wish to register for a course or workshop, complete the 2017 Registration Form and return it to the address given.
