4-Hour Personal Safety and Self Defense Course Description – Instructor: Preston L. Taylor

This four-hour course is designed to provide important safety tips and precautions for personal safety in the workplace. This is especially true for real estate professionals as they are very often in situations that expose them to unknown situations, with unknown persons. Instructor Preston Taylor has worked in law enforcement for over 20 years, is a Police Academy Instructor, and a Defensive Tactics Instructor for over 15 years. He has acted as a speaker/trainer for the National Association of Realtors and the Michigan Association of Realtors.

It is important to understand the legal environment surrounding self-defense and the physical limitations that can be a factor for each individual. There are key “Rules of Engagement” that will help those who work with the public to recognize and avoid dangerous situations. If a confrontation does occur, the instructor outlines and demonstrates the best and most practical ways to respond to and reduce potential harm. This program offers self-defense techniques from the stand-up position using easy and effective gross motor skills, to ground defense and ground avoidance (rape prevention).

Upon completion of this course, participants will:

  • Understand what laws govern personal protection and the use of deadly force.
  • Recognize the pros and cons of firearms, pepper spray, and stun guns.
  • Be able to effectively use the most practical precautions during both home showings and open houses.

4-Hour Lead Paint Awareness Course Description – Instructor:  Scott Corbat

Traditional renovation work can create significant dust-lead hazards if lead-based paint is disturbed. Contaminated dust generated by traditional renovation work can cause lead poisoning in children, pregnant women, healthy adults, and even pets.

After completing this course participants will be able to:
•   Understand the dangers inherent in lead paint, including the risks and difficulties involved in renovation projects that involve older structures.•   Summarize the EPA and HUD rules required of Certified Firms and Certified Renovators.•   Determine if lead-based paint affects your work, and how to educate owners and residents in target housing, or owners and adult representatives in child-occupied facilities about how the work will affect lead in their property, and how to plan the work so that it is lead safe.•   Outline the process of proper set up so that dust and debris created by the work do not contaminate the property and leave behind lead contaminated dust.•   Describe how to effectively clean up dust generated by the work performed in the home or child- occupied facility; how Certified Renovators conduct a cleaning verification; and how to dispose of renovation waste.

Laws that govern property management are, however, different from those that govern how to operate a real estate brokerage. This course will outline some of the most important aspects to keep in mind when considering expanding your business.

2-Hour Environmental Issues Course Description – Instructor:  Gwyn Besner

Human activity has been impacting the environment for thousands of years. Industrial, chemical, and energy related waste materials have had an exponential effect on the environment. It has only been in the last 50 years or so that environmental laws have been enacted to protect public health, safety and welfare, as well as preserving natural resources.  These and other issues have made environmental law more and more prevalent in real estate transactions and litigation, as opposing groups seek to contain and remediate costs associated with contaminated sites and similar issues.

Traditional renovation work can create significant dust-lead hazards if lead-based paint is disturbed. Contaminated dust generated by traditional renovation work can cause lead poisoning in children, pregnant women, healthy adults, and even pets. Practical changes in work practices can minimize and contain dust. The use of lead-safe work practices makes the job safer and reduces liability exposure. This course will teach you how to perform or supervise lead-safe work practices safely and effectively. This course is not a qualifier for RRP Certification. You must complete an EPA accredited course for Certified Renovator Status.

2-Hour Water Rights Course Description – Instructor:  Gwyn Besner

With the increased demand for water frontage and access to water, its value has increased dramatically, which in turn has led to many efforts to buy up water frontage and develop it for specific projects. That goal is often at odds with the desire of the local governments and the DEQ to preserve natural areas and to protect the public’s access to the state’s water resources. These and other issues have made water law and riparian rights more and more prevalent in real estate transactions and litigation as opposing groups seek to use or redefine riparian rights, ownership of waterfront property, access to water, flowage rights along rivers and streams, and similar issues.
