State-Sponsored Education

The Division of Property Valuation and Review  (PVR) offers lister and assessor courses at no charge to current Vermont municipal assessment officials.

PVR partners with organizations such as Vermont Assessors and Listers Association (VALA), Vermont League of Cities and Towns (VLCT) and New England Municipal Resource Center (NEMRC) to directly sponsor events and eliminate and reduce training charges for listers and assessors. This includes VALA trainings, VLCT workshops, and the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) courses and workshops.

All courses listed are free to municipalities:
