- 175 US dollars$175
This synchronous learning platform seven instructional hour course provides the student with an overview and a review of various aspects of Human Rights, Equal/Fair Housing, & ADA, etc. Special emphasis is placed on protecting the public from bias or discrimination or disparate impact in appraising. In systems engineering, in theory, to solve a problem one must first identify a need. A needs assessment is conducted to determine if there is really a problem that needs to be solved. For a few minutes, let us review the origin of the need for fair housing. Let us start with a few questions of need. First, what is fair housing? Who is fair housing for? When did the need for fair housing occur? Where is fair housing needed? Why do we need fair housing? How do we achieve fair housing? How is an appraiser impacted by fair housing requirements when proving service to the public? We will review guidance from USPAP. We will review appraisal principles. After this review, we look at some of the remedies that have been initiated to address the issue of discrimination and segregation in housing and what role an appraiser may play in this arena. Also, we will look at some of the legislations, rules, acts, etc. which have been adopted by various agencies to address discrimination in housing and what role an appraiser may play in eliminating the potential for discrimination in valuation service to the public. We will review the protected classes, traits, persons, etc., who are covered by these various remedies. We will review the complaint process on the local and federal levels. Appraisers will benefit by knowing what you did not know before. Finally, with time permitting, we will look at case studies and discover possible courses of action an appraiser might consider as solutions to elimination the potential for discrimination for each case presented. At the conclusion of this course, the successful participant will receive a certificate of completion. Link to the course will be emailed 1 day prior to the class start.
