Service, Support and Companion Animals
Real estate licensees should have some familiarity with the laws that prohibit discrimination against persons who have a disability. In this course, Chapter 1 covers key provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act with a specific focus on public accommodations for service animals. Chapter 2 will focus on the Fair Housing Act and the anti-discriminatory provisions of the Act that protect persons with disabilities and their animals. Chapter 3 will provide an overview of the process for filing a discriminatory housing complaint and review several complaints involving decisions about the allowance for animals in housing and public accommodations. This course is intended to enhance the knowledge and effectiveness of real estate licensees and is approved for 2 hours of continuing education.
