Fair Housing Training

This all-new seminar fro 2018 sets a new standard in Fair Housing training

Developed by NAA and IREM, this ground-breaking seminar uses videotaped scenarios to demonstrate how real-life situations require critical thinking and prudent decision making.  It vividly shows the serious consequences of incorrect responses and provides coaching on how to avoid costly mistakes and delivers relevant knowledge of Fair Housing essentials— practical explanations of how federal, state, and local protected classes and barred discriminatory
