This course 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. This course includes the following lessons: - The Indoor Environment- The External Environment- Legislation- Disclosure and Site Assessment- Real Estate Practice Students will learn throughout this course 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 course 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 course presents real world dilemmas and applications of the information presented. As the student completes this course, he or she should try to paint a big picture of environmental issues, which the course will address with comprehensive content questions, practices and case studies.

the biggest problem is if you leave it alone for too long, you have to start all the way over.... so if you have to use the restroom, or something comes up that needs your attention you cannot pause the course and pick up where you left off. I gotta go
