Lead Paint Awareness 


Course Description

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.

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.

Personal Safety and Self Defense

 


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

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.

Agency


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Real estate agents are subject to a broad range of legal and ethical requirements that are designed to protect buyers, sellers and the community at large.

This relationship falls under the domain of “law of agency”. This three-hour video course outlines the various types of agency and the standards of practice associated with each.

After completing this course  participants will be able to:

  • Recognize and implement the broad range of legal and ethical requirements that protect buyers and sellers.

Real Estate Disclosure Laws


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Real estate agents are subject to a broad range of legal and ethical requirements that are designed to protect buyers, sellers and the community at large. While disclosure laws are in place to protect the consumer, they constitute a legal framework that real estate professionals must comply with. There are a number of areas that require disclosure in real estate; seller’s property condition, agency relationships, lead-based paint presence, mineral/subsurface rights, and finally consumer financing requirements. This course covers the disclosure laws that real estate professionals must adhere to, the transactions in which they will come across these requirements, and case law to illustrate real life scenarios.

After completing this course  participants will be able to:

  • Recognize and implement the broad range of disclosure requirements that protect buyers and sellers.
  • Be able to describe and integrate the agency relationships that are created during a real estate transaction.

Environmental Issues


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

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.

Fair Housing


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

It is important to realize Fair Housing laws are very much a part of today’s real estate market. Both Federal and State governments employ “testers” to police the industry. Testing is not considered entrapment and the results are admissible in court. Fair Housing is the law of the land, and even in the face of some apparent exceptions, there is no room for discrimination of any sort in the business of housing.

The Fair Housing Act has its roots in the civil rights movement and is arguably the final great legislative achievement of the times. It is a landmark civil rights act that pushed back decades of discrimination.

After completing this course  participants will be able to:

  • Understand the history behind and the connection between civil rights legislation and the Fair Housing Act.
  • Recognize and apply the standards outlined by court decisions in Fair Housing case law.
  • Be able to integrate the rules and regulations pertaining to Fair Housing laws in the real estate industry.
