A. Any persons appointed to a board of assessors under the authority of this article shall be freeholders in the county or city for which they serve and shall be appointed by the governing body from the citizens of the county or city.

In order to be eligible for appointment, each prospective member of such board may, at the discretion of the Department, be required to attend and participate in the basic course of instruction given by the Department under § 58.1-206.

B. All supervisors, appraisers, and personnel employed by the board of assessors to perform the general reassessment shall have the qualifications prescribed by the Department for the particular position held, which shall include such combinations of education, training and experience as are deemed necessary for the performance of their duties. The provisions of this article as to the appointment or removal of such assessors shall apply to any appointments heretofore or hereafter made.

C. All supervisors, assessors and appraisers who have been contracted by the board of assessors to perform the general reassessment shall hold a valid certification issued by the Department pursuant to § 58.1-3258.1.
