Fair Housing Institute – Affordable Mitigation To Avoid Expensive Litigation
In 2005, The Fair Housing Institute was founded as a company with one goal: to provide the country’s most educational and entertaining fair housing compliance training at an affordable price, all at the click of a button.
We are able to provide the best training available because we offer the only online fair housing training in the country whose content comes directly from a fair housing and civil rights defense firm. Their decades of experience training, advising and litigating, allow them to break down complicated compliance issues and explain them in a way that is easy for everyone to understand.
Fair Housing Training Options
For years many companies have relied on classroom seminars to provide fair housing training. While in-person training is a great option for some companies, others do not have the time or resources to allocate to this method of training. At The Fair Housing Institute, Inc. we provide training options for every company whether you are training one person or ten thousand. There’s no traveling or off-site time. We deliver interactive, comprehensive, and thorough Fair Housing online training right to your employee’s computer, tablet, or smartphone!
At The Fair Housing Institute, Inc. we are proud to have been working with companies and training tens of thousands of employees for decades. We have continued to grow our relationships in the housing community because housing and management companies across the country recognize the level of expertise we bring to the table.
