Ethics ASA requires all applicants to pass an Ethics exam prior to acceptance as a Candidate member, and ethical matters are a large part of the USPAP course. Professional ethics are strictly enforced by the American Society of Appraisers, and unethical or unprofessional practices will not be tolerated in a member.

Education ASA requires all members to re-certify every five years. Part of the process is to show that the member has participated and acquired approximately 45 Continuing Education Units in their area of expertise plus 45 CEUs in other areas of appraisal education, including USPAP. The San Diego Chapter holds monthly educational programs offering a wide variety of topics of importance to all appraisers. ASA International sponsors seminars, conferences, internet-based courses and degree programs in conjunction with major universities.
