Mission Statement 

American Business Consultants, Inc. and The Society of Certified Business Opportunity Appraisers have one primary purpose.  That is to provide education and support in business valuation to its members and others interested in the business appraisal or broker fields.

Admission requirements and continuing education will help to provide recognition and acceptance of the members within the public as individuals knowledgeable and experienced in this interesting and specialized field.



Designation Overview

The Society of Certified Business Opportunity Appraisers offers three levels of recognition.  Designations are based on the needs of the members applying and would include:

BE (Business Evaluator)  –  This designation would be useful for the broker or salesman that handles business opportunity transactions.

BOA (Business Opportunity Appraiser)  –  This designation has been designed to denote someone with more experience in the selling of business opportunities and an individual with appraisal experience that is seeking higher achievement in the appraisal field.

CBOA (Certified Business Opportunity Appraiser)  –  This is the highest designation offered by The Society.  The designation signifies an individual that has a broad background in appraising businesses, both educationally and in actual experience.  This designation denotes someone that has specialized education and experience in complex appraisal assignments.

The following lists the current requirements for the different designations offered by The Society of Certified Business Opportunity Appraisers.  Please note that substitution of experience for education is at a two-to-one rate.  If you need further information or clarification please contact Mr. Bud Garvin, cboa or Pat Wright, cboa at 255 North “D” Street, Suite 202A, San Bernardino, California 92401, or call 909-885-0934
