Program Description

This webinar is the first in a series of four webinars leading to the Accredited in Business Appraisal Review™ (ABAR™) accreditation. This series picks up where the first half of "Report Writing - Review and Analysis" left off. Together, both series consitute the learning portion of the ABAR education program. This webinar series includes homework sessions that enable the student to complete the learning of the ABAR body of knowledge and prepare to take the ABAR written examination and demonstration report case study. The examination and case study follow the completion of this series and can be taken remotely or in a one-day classroom session.

This webinar focuses on the seven elements of a credible business appraisal report. The ABAR concept of credibility is grounded on consideration and inclusion of all known facts and circumstances in the appraisal report. Credibility is defined by seven basic processes, applied throughout an assignment. The student learns the meaning and application of each of the seven elements, with the focus on applying each element to the appraisal report under review in order to make an overall assessment and evaluation of the credibility of the report.
