DART APPRAISAL ANNOUNCES DART ACADEMY

PARTNERSHIP WITH MCKISSOCK EDUCATION OFFERS CONTINUING & QUALIFYING EDUCATION FOR REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS

Troy, MI, September 22, 2010 - Dart Appraisal today announced the launch of Dart Academy™, a partnership with McKissock, LP to offer online options to appraisers for continuing education and pre-licensing /upgrade purposes nationwide. McKissock, LP is a nationally recognized online provider of appraisal education, with approved courses available in all 50 states and three U.S. territories.

"For nearly two decades, Dart Appraisal has been an AMC committed to appraiser advancement and education," said Darton Case, founder and  chief executive officer of Dart Appraisal. "We're proud to be one of the first AMCs to offer online continuing education courses for appraisers. Through the launch of Dart Academy™ on our Web site, we are leveraging our partnership with McKissock for our more than 8,000 appraisers nationwide. Dart Academy™ creates access to comprehensive real estate education and licensing, readily accessible online through a trusted resource, and available at a discount as well."

"We believe that our online services provide an invaluable tool for appraisers who don't have the time to attend a live seminar or simply prefer to learn at their own pace to meet their continuing education requirements," said Tony Thrift, vice president of business relations for McKissock.

"We're in contact with the Appraisal Board of each state to ensure that our courses provide information that relates to both national and state-specific laws," added Thrift. "We are committed to providing our customers with courses that not only help them complete their renewal requirements, but also help them to expand their knowledge base and augment the skills that they will utilize in their careers as business professionals."

Tracey Meldrum will serve as the Dart Appraisal vendor coordinator overseeing the launch and implementation of Dart Academy™. Meldrum was recently added to the team to provide additional resources to the company's expanding appraiser panel.

Dart Appraisal has relied on McKissock for educational services since 1996, when Case himself began updating his continuing education credits both online and in classes through the company.
