Creator of the Hotel Valuation Methodology
If you are an experienced appraiser looking to specialize in valuing hotels or a new valuer starting your career, you need to obtain a hotel valuation certification. By successfully completing my course and a final project, you will become a Certified Hotel Appraiser (CHA) or a Certified Hotel Valuer (CHV) the world's only hotel valuation certification. (Note: Both certifications are the same. Depending on your local professional terminology, you may want to be certified as an "Appraiser" or "Valuer.") Adding CHA or CHV certification to your resume and LinkedIn profile will certainly set you apart from all other appraisers/valuers and industry professionals.
Obtaining the Certification requires the demonstration of proficiency in valuing hotels and the use and application of the Hotel Valuation Software during the final project where you value an actual hotel.

With your permission, we will e-mail pdf copies of your certificate to prospective employers and anyone else you designate acknowledging your Certification.
