Among the appraisers organized by the BÁV Appraiser Academy, the work art appraiser training is very popular, almost always “sold-out”, in many cases we can only receive those interested on a waiting list.

The participants have nine months to master the curriculum.

The training consists of three modules:

  1. Operation of a commercial unit;
  2. The general activity of the appraiser,
