This course satisfies the new continuing education core requirement put into effect for 2022. Licensees operating in Rhode Island must complete 6 hours of core credit, including 3 hours on fair housing, in order to renew. Our course is divided into two parts, one on fair housing law and housing discrimination, and the other on professional ethics in the real estate industry.
In part one, we’ll examine the history and evolution of fair housing law, why it came to be, and how far it still needs to go. What constitutes a disability and reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act is clarified. We’ll cover federally protected classes and Rhode Island’s additional ones, including the recently enacted new ones. Housing discrimination is an ongoing concern that must be mitigated. To this end, we offer practical advice for real estate professionals.
Part two focuses on what defines and separates ethics from other governing ideas. We’ll present ethical dilemmas and how a licensee might arrive at a solution or decision that represents best trade practices. Ethical duties, terms, and concepts will be explained.
Videos, scenarios, and imagery are utilized throughout the course for visual and auditory learning styles. After each lesson, students will be asked a single question about the material.
