Become an Auctioneer Online
August 19, 2021

Walters State Community College is offering the opportunity to prepare for the state’s auctioneering license online. 
The Division of Workforce Training offers both the 16-hour course for a gallery license and the 50-hour course for an apprenticeship license using the Zoom video conferencing platform. Both classes begin Sept. 14.
“The Division has offered classes online through ed2go for several years. We have also offered many classes with a local instructor live on one campus, while video streaming to other locations,” said Dr. Anita Ricker, assistant dean of workforce training.
“This will be the third time we have offered auctioneering online. This class will be live, meeting at the same time every week. The instructor is great and many area auctioneers have come through these classes.”
The 16-hour class will meet Sept. 14-23, 6-10 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday. The cost is $434. This class covers advanced topics of auctioneering and meets state licensure exam requirements. Upon completion and passing the state’s gallery exam, students may apply for a gallery license with the Tennessee Auctioneer Commission.
The 50-hour class meets Sept. 14-Oct. 26, 6-10 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The cost is $634. This course includes materials covered in the 16-hour course and provides the fundamentals required for students interested in becoming an apprentice auctioneer. Upon completion of this course and passing the apprenticeship exam, students may apply for an apprentice license with the Tennessee Auctioneer Commission. 
A zoom link and course materials will be sent following registration for the course.
