FL 4.0 hours Personal Safety - Course Syllabus
4.0 Specialty Credit Hours
If you are meeting someone new, take extra precautions to ensure your safety by finding out as much as possible about the person. Don't be afraid to ask for documents and ID and always ask questions to get familiar with the prospect. Further lessons go into much more detail about documentation and the specific things an agent could ask for. Aside from the typical real estate questions about what the buyers are looking for and how much they qualify for, personal questions can (and should be) asked, if done in a businesslike manner.
Just because we may not think of doing harm to others, it doesn't mean that others won't do harm to us. There are many self-defense classes available to reduce the risk of being a victim of crime. Many of these classes are developed and taught by real estate professionals. Taking a self-defense class is a good idea for the real estate professional to consider.
Safety can never be assured. The measures discussed in this course can help reduce the risk of being a victim of a violent crime, but they cannot reduce the risk entirely. Those real estate professionals who practice solid safety measures daily are much less likely to be the victim of a crime.
