Illinois Property Assessment Institute

The Illinois Property Assessment Institute was established more than 50 years ago to elevate professional standards for and provide educational opportunities to assessment professionals throughout the state of Illinois. The IPAI is the only education provider focused on the distinct needs of Illinois assessment professionals. To meet our mission of “elevating and enlightening” Assessing Officials and professionals, we’ve developed a comprehensive curriculum that we offer annually throughout the state. All of our classes are taught by practicing assessment and business professionals who bring expertise and everyday experience into the classroom. The IPAI is a non-profit organization, funded solely by course revenue. We also own and confer the Certified Illinois Assessing Officer (CIAO) designation; the primary designation used to qualify for election or appointment in Illinois.
