Instructor: Mark Kitabayashi
DOL has implemented Substitute Senate Bill 5378. The bill requires education on Fair Housing for new licensees and renewals. It applies to real estate brokers and managing brokers and went into effect June 1st, 2022. This is part of the required 30-hour continuing education instruction. The first active renewal after June 1st, 2022, must include the 6-hour Washington Real Estate Fair housing class. With every renewal afterward, licensees must complete a 3-hour course.
The purpose of this course is to introduce real estate brokers and managing brokers to the federal Fair Housing Act (42 U.S.C. 3601 et seq.) and the Washington Law Against Discrimination (chapter 49.60 RCW) as it relates to real estate transactions. The course will teach real estate brokers and managing brokers the historical and societal context of housing discrimination, legal framework intended to prevent housing discrimination, and steps to take to prevent housing discrimination.
