2017-2018 Hawaii Core A: Online
This course focuses on technology—the good, the bad, and the evil—and how to reduce risk in your use of it. In addition, an overview is given on the legalities of copyright, trademarks, and public domain content.
An important topic that deserves a visit are the laws related to handling trust funds for real estate transactions in Hawaii, including the “what to do” and the “what to avoid.”
In addition, legislative updates have been included. Developed within days of many of these bills becoming law, this course provides licensees with an overview of those changes most pertinent to the Hawaii real estate industry. Bills that will interest most licensees are featured, covering a range of topics including expanded definitions and protections, condominium association matters, cesspool upgrades, late payment caps, and other topics.
