Certificate / License Programs
Troy University’s Continuing Education Center is proud to offer the oldest – and only – Auctioneer School in the State of
Auctioneering is a part of history and can be a very rewarding profession. The goal of our auctioneer school is to train good
auctioneers and to promote high standards of ethics among auctioneers. During the school, each participant will develop a
style of auctioneering that will be unique.
The school consists of 85 hours of auction instruction, as required by the
Alabama State Board of Auctioneers. Students from reciprocal states
requiring more hours will attend additional hours. Direct application exer-
cises covering a wide range of topics include:
Auctioneering History and Ethics
Auction and Commercial Law
Uniform Commercial Code
Clerking and Cashiering
Advertising an Auction
Site Preparation and Restoration
Participants will learn and receive information on the many different auction types from experienced auctioneers. The school
is instructed by licensed professionals with a focus on quality in the area of auctioneering law and business.
A valuable part of the experience is the opportunity to develop the auction chant. Much class time is spent practicing drills
and verbal twisters. Participants will actually participate in conducting an auction which will be open to the general public.
In addition to attending classes, participants must successfully complete a comprehensive practical and written examination
in order to graduate from Auctioneer School.
