Course Registration

How do I register for virtual classes?

  • To register, simply click on Virtual Instructor-Led Classes by State, choose your state; click on the desired course, select your date & time, click Add to Cart. If you want to add more courses to your cart (recommended), click the back button and choose another course. Once you’ve added all wanted courses, click View Cart, enter your appraiser license number (if applicable), then click Check Out.

I received an invitation to Litmos/Columbia Institute – what is that?

  • Litmos is our new Learning Management System. This is how you can access your virtual course, complete course surveys and receive your completion certificate. You can also reference back for your course materials if needed.

How do I log into the LMS (Litmos)?

  • To log in, go to and click on Student Login. Your username is your email address. If you can’t remember your password, please click “I’ve forgotten my username/password”; then follow the prompts.

What are the password requirements?

When a password is set/reset it will need to contain at least:
8 characters
1 upper case
1 lower case
1 number
1 special character (*please note underscore is not considered a special character by the platform and will not work to meet the special character requirement)
Passwords are limited to 20 characters in length
