Fair Housing Act’s Accessibility Guidelines Training

Silver State Fair Housing Council
 In Events

Silver State Fair Housing Council is happy to announce that we have scheduled TWO in-person trainings on the Fair Housing Act’s accessibility requirements for new multifamily housing in Las Vegas and Reno, NV! This year, the training will take place in Reno on Thursday, September 15, 2022,  and in Las Vegas on Wednesday, October 26, 2022.  Both trainings will be from 8AM to 4PM. The course has been approved by AIA for 6.0 LU/HSW credits, based on the length of the training.  4.0 LU/HSW for the classroom session, and 2.0 LU/HSW for the on-site practical assessment.  SSFHC is approved for 6.0 hours/General credits of Continuing Legal Education(CLE) from the State Bar of Nevada.

The “Fair Housing Act’s Accessibility Guidelines Training” is a comprehensive overview of the seven design requirements of the Fair Housing Act’s accessibility guidelines. The course is instructed by a licensed architect and is targeted to architects, developers, real estate professionals, attorneys and advocates.  The on-site practical assessment  will allow training participants to meet on-site at a local apartment complex built for first occupancy after March 13, 1991, a “covered property” under the Fair Housing Act. Participants, led by the trainer, will visit the public and common use areas, walk the property’s access routes, and visit at least one ground floor unit. Participants will learn how to measure and assess compliance with the accessibility guidelines. This hands-on experience allows participants to use information received in the classroom and apply it to the built environment.

Please contact SSFHC for additional information.

SSFHC remains committed to ensuring compliance with fair housing design requirements and expanding housing opportunities for people of all abilities!
