Environmental Hazards New

Course Description



Course Description:
This module covers major environmental hazards. Licensees need to familiarize themselves with environmental issues because they have a responsibility to disclose to buyers any information that might affect their decision to buy. Environmental hazards can dramatically affect a property’s value, so buyers, sellers, lenders and licensees all can be affected by them. Students will learn throughout this module to identify internal and external environmental issues. They will learn about health hazards, environmental legislation, liability and responsibility for cleanup and protection. They will also learn about actions they should take and how issues affect licensees and lending. Licensees are not expected to be environmental experts, but in this module students will acquire a competency with environmental issues which will help them to elucidate issues for buyers, sellers and lenders. Knowledge of environmental issues also will help protect them from charges of nondisclosure. The conclusion of this module presents real world dilemmas and applications of the information presented. As the student completes this module, he or she should try to paint a big picture of environmental issues, which the module will address with comprehensive content questions, practices and case studies.

After a student completes an online course, they are supposed to print a copy of the “Certification Statement” and the “Correspondence Course Evaluation”. We need one copy of the Certification Statement and one Correspondence Course Evaluation for each course completed. This can be mailed or faxed to us at the school. Here at the school we are notified that the student passed the course. We mail a completion certificate to the student “AFTER” we receive the Certification Statement & Evaluation forms. We can also fax their certificate to them if they request it. We do have a little problem with students not faxing or mailing the forms to us. If the student cannot print the forms we can fax or mail forms to them to complete. We do not send any completion certificates to the MREC.
