Fair housing compliance education content now part of Yardi eLearning online curriculum
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., June 28, 2017 – Property managers in Texas can streamline fair housing training with state-approved content from Yardi. The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs now lists Yardi® eLearning in the approved fair housing trainers directory. The directory is a resource for housing providers needing to train employees on fair housing compliance and best practices.
“We are thrilled to provide cost-effective and highly engaging compliance training for our clients,” said Becky Sanvictores, vice president of client services at Yardi. “This certification is an acknowledgement of the caliber of learning services we offer our clients.”
Federal and state fair housing laws protect residents from discrimination based on race, familial status, religion and disability. Property management companies are exposed to potential litigation if staff violate laws while working with prospects and residents. Texas requires five hours of fair housing training for each employee every year.
Along with the newly approved content, Texas fair housing trainers can further leverage the features of the Yardi online learning platform. Automated tasks include scheduling email notifications, course recertifications and integration with HR software. The platform tracks and records course completions and other employee training activities.
Yardi eLearning streamlines access to role-based training resources for more than 44,000 active users. It replaces traditional classroom instruction with web-based, interactive courses and live webinar events. Users can access Yardi eLearning from any device with Internet access, including tablets and smartphones.
Multifamily housing providers in Texas can visit yardi.com/eLearning or call 800.866.1144 to schedule a demonstration.
