The Office of Equity and Human Rights recently created an online fair housing training that can be completed 24/7. This training provides an in-depth look at many local fair housing laws and best practices, including state and local protected categories, reasonable accommodations and modifications, prohibited activities, assistance animals, service animals, and much more at no cost. 

This is the perfect training opportunity for those in the housing industries or for persons who want to know their rights as they relate to fair housing. The training takes approximately 35 minutes to complete. Participants have the option of receiving a certificate of completion by taking the accompanying test and receiving a passing score. The training is available at
