Fair Housing for Maintenance
This course will give a general overview of compliance with fair housing laws such as the Fair Housing Act, Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act and Americans with Disabilities Act. We will focus on specific areas of fair housing that will allow maintenance personnel to avoid legal pitfalls that could interfere with the property’s compliance with the law.

Make-Ready Maintenance
Learn how to address one of the most important roles that a maintenance technician has at an apartment community: getting an apartment ready for a new resident. This program reviews the role that a maintenance technician plays in inspecting and scheduling a vacant apartment through to completion. This program also covers the role of the maintenance department regarding renewals. Topics Covered:

  • Scheduling and prioritizing maintenance tasks
  • Observation skills and strategies when turning a unit
  • Viewing the apartment as a product
  • Maintenance’s role with new residents and resident retention
  • Solutions to common problems
  • Loss prevention (move-out inventory)
  • How a make-ready checklist is an effective tool
