From the AQB perspective, the scope of practice for a credential is not impacted by the scope of work for any particular assignment. In other words, the requirements for a Trainee Appraiser (and a Supervisory Appraiser) remain the same regardless the level of inspection performed. So a desktop appraisal would include the same requirements for a Trainee Appraiser as a "full interior" or "drive by" assignment.
However, Trainee Appraisers should make sure to check with their state appraiser regulatory agencies since some states may restrict the type of assignments a Trainee can perform.
