The procedure for filing a complaint of discrimination are studied in detail and there are lots of hints on how to stay clear of discriminatory practices in sales, rentals and financing of real estate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barbara M. from I enjoyed taking this course online. It allowed me to pace myself and work at my own speed. I was also able to take breaks if necessary and my course work would be saved. I do highly recommend printing out each chapter as you go so you have reference material when answering challenging questions.
