2019 auctioneer class

"Would recommend school to anyone who is wanting to learn the business."   ---David L. Harris 

Troy University’s Continuing Education & Outreach office is proud to offer the oldest – and only – Auctioneer School in the State of Alabama. 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, plus direct application exercises covering a wide range of topics including:

  • 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.

Troy University Auctioneer School believes 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.
