Mandatory CE - Diversity in Real Estate (VIRTUAL - PA,3.5 Hours)

Note: This topic fulfills the REQUIRED 2022 Continuing Education topic for all non-first time renewal licensees.

Fair and equitable treatment is a right by law. In this course, we will focus on the mandatory fair housing issues that real estate licensees must understand. The United States Congress and your state legislature have made it clear that ensuring everyone equal access to housing is an important goal for our society. Real estate agents need to know what conduct violates anti-discrimination laws to avoid potential liability. In addition, we will discuss best practices to address diversity issues and examine overt and implicit bias that can be present in real estate practice. You will learn about the federal anti-discrimination laws, problems that can occur from fair housing violations, and your duties and responsibilities to treat all parties fairly and equally under the law. We will also review current events and discuss “best practices” to ensure compliance with fair housing laws.
