Connecticut 3 Hour Fair Housing Review (2018-2020 Mandatory)
- 3 Hour Course
Connecticut Real Estate Commission has designated 3 hours of the 12 total that real estate licensees need in order to renew their licenses to be about fair housing.
Our course begins with an overview of the four topics that will be discussed in this course. A series of slides provided verbatim by the University of Connecticut will highlight the key takeaways for licensees in the first half of the course. Statutes and regulations surrounding security deposits, advertising practices, fair housing law, and client data protection will be referenced and explained.
In the second part of the course, online advertising practices and appropriate reasons for compensation are explored. Learn the particular requirements and allowances of security deposit handling in Connecticut. Then dive into the history, terminology, and necessity of fair housing laws, at both the state and federal levels. Differentiate between the types of protected classes. Familiarize yourself with the fair housing claims process, and understand how real estate licensees can ensure illegal discrimination doesn’t have a home in the business of real estate.
Videos and imagery are utilized throughout the course to enhance comprehension for visual and auditory learning styles. After each lesson, students will be asked a single question about the material. Two incremental quizzes and one final exam will test the student's knowledge. Successful completion of all material will unlock the Certificate needed for license renewal.
