(1) A certified real estate appraiser licensed by the state of Washington may supervise trainees in accordance with the following provisions:
(a) The certified real estate appraiser is in good standing and not subject to any disciplinary action which affects their legal eligibility to engage in appraisal practice within the three years preceding registration to become a supervisory appraiser.
(b) The certified real estate appraiser shall have been certified for a minimum of three years prior to becoming a supervisory appraiser.

(e) Supervision of trainees in the process of appraising real property shall occur within the boundaries of the state of Washington and comply with jurisdictional and established agreements with other states. If a trainee is supervised by a certified appraiser who is licensed in both the state of Washington and with another state or has a temporary license in another state; and the trainee is registered as a trainee in that other state by either temporary permit, license, or registration, then the appraisal assignments shall qualify as work experience on the experience log.

(g) A registered real estate appraiser trainee may assist in the completion of an appraisal report, including determination of an opinion of value and may sign the appraisal report, provided that he/she is actively and personally supervised by a state-certified real estate appraiser, and provided that the appraisal report is reviewed and signed by the state-certified real estate appraiser; and provided the state-certified appraiser accepts total responsibility for the appraisal report.
(h) The certified appraiser shall:
(i) Personally inspect with the trainee, at a minimum, the interior of twenty-five subject properties, or until the supervisory appraiser considers the trainee competent.
(ii) Personally review and verify each appraisal report prepared by the trainee as entered on the trainee experience log as qualifying work experience prior to the log being submitted to the department by the supervised trainee. The trainee shall be entitled to obtain copies of the appraisal reports in which the trainee provided appraisal assistance.
(iii) Personally review and verify each appraisal report prepared by a state licensed or certified residential appraiser as entered on the qualifying work experience log prior to the log being submitted to the department by the licensee. The state licensed or certified residential appraiser shall be entitled to obtain copies of the appraisal reports in which the state licensed and certified residential appraiser provided appraisal assistance.

(v) Maintain a separate "properties inspected with trainee" log for each supervised trainee. This log must be made available to the department upon request and is to be submitted with trainee's application for license or certification.
(vi) Register with the department as a supervisory appraiser and include the names of the registered real estate appraiser trainees being supervised. Registration must be five business days prior to the start of supervision. The supervisory appraiser shall notify the department when they are no longer a supervisory appraiser of a trainee, with such notice including the name, address, and registration number of the registered trainee.
(2) Authorization may be granted by the director to a certified appraiser to exceed the number of trainees allowed to be supervised providing:
(a) The certified appraiser has more than five years certified experience.
(b) The certified appraiser shall make a written application to the department requesting to supervise not more than three trainees with less than one year experience; and three trainees with more than one year experience; and five trainees with greater than two years experience. The total number of supervised trainees shall not exceed eight for all experience levels at any one time.
(c) The certified appraiser shall prepare and maintain trainee progress reports and make them available to the department until such time as the trainee becomes certified or licensed or after two years has lapsed since supervising the trainee.
