We offer continuing education training for real estate professionals. Our four-hour course is called, Risk and Readiness: What Real Estate Professionals Should Know about Climate Change. The course and instructors have been approved by the Montana Board of Realty Regulation for continuing education credits in the State of Montana. Future courses may become available across the United States. Our course objectives include:

  • Share tools and key concepts for discussing climate change risk and readiness with your clients and colleagues.

  • Examine the emerging market for climate smart homes and communities.
  • Review climate change trends and projected impacts in the U.S., regionally and locally.
  • Recommend how homeowners and communities can minimize risk exposure and increase readiness.

We have offered courses across Montana in cooperation with REALTOR associations in Great Falls, Billings, Bozeman, Missoula and Kalispell. Future courses will be posted here.
