Property Valuation and Review (PVR) offers Lister and Assessor courses at no charge to current Vermont municipal assessment officials. Registrations are checked against final sign-in sheets to ensure participation. This continues to cover PVR sponsored educational workshops.
PVR partners with organizations such as Vermont Assessors and Listers Association (VALA) and the Vermont League of Cities and Towns (VLCT) to directly sponsor events and eliminate or reduce training costs for listers and assessors. This would include VALA trainings, VLCT workshops, IAAO courses & workshops and at this time NEMRC seminars.
Up to 20 percent of the amount available for education programs may be reserved as a scholarship fund to permit municipal officials to attend national programs providing education opportunities on advanced assessment topics. 32 V.S.A. § 4041a(d).
To apply for the funds for education opportunities not PVR sponsored, please contact the Lister Education Program at (802) 828-6639.
As of July 1, 2017 PVR, carryover lister education grant funds are no longer available. This is replaced with the reimbursement through the Application for Lister/Assessor Education Funds.
