Event description

Description

Rent Well, a program of Transition Projects, was created in 2009 and is a 15-hour tenant education program taught by certified instructors who are affiliated with current Rent Well community partner agencies. Students of the program are mostly low-income individuals that may have barriers to either becoming or staying stably housed.

During this class, instructors teach students how to:

  • Identify potential screening barriers
  • Understand how and why a landlord will screen them
  • Review important personal records; such as credit, civil, and criminal reports
  • Create an individualized plan for stable housing
  • Build a household budget that makes paying rent a priority
  • Review rental agreements to understand common terms and expectations
  • Understand the landlord’s perspective
  • Communicate effectively with neighbors and landlords
  • Be knowledgeable about moving-in and moving-out of rental units in a professional manner
  • Understand the eviction process and how to avoid it
  • Maintain a clean, safe, and healthy home

If you are an individual who is affiliated with a Rent Well community partner agency as a staff member or volunteer and are looking at becoming a certified Rent Well instructor, the Train the Trainer course is for you. The Train the Trainer course is an in-person 2 and a half day educational course that teaches you the ins and outs of the rental process.

What the Train the Trainer course offers:

This is a 2 and a half day training for individuals who plan on teaching the curriculum at their agency at least once a year. 16 hours of this course goes over the student curriculum and how to teach the information to the students and the half day is a review of teaching adult learners, setting up a healthy learning environment, and the administrative pieces of the program.

Instructors receive an Instructor Manual, guidance around the administrative processes, and on-going technical support. They have the ability to graduate students and potentially provide them with access to a Rental Assurance Fund for Tenancy throughout the state of Oregon.

Registration, Fees, and Deadlines:

Course sizes are capped at 30 people and seats are reserved once the application and registration fee are paid for/by an individual affiliated with a community agency. Event registration and payments can complete through our online payment system or with a printed out registration application and check mailed in a minimum of 21 days before the training. Receipts will be automatically sent to the email address supplied during the time of the online registration or will be emailed to the email address supplied on the paper application when received. A cancellation fee will be charged for any cancellations made within 7 days before the training. Registration fee is $400.

For individuals affiliated with a Rent Well community partner agency that are seeking professional development
opportunities without becoming a certified instructor, Rent Well can offer the possibility of the individual attending only 2 days of training. These individuals would receive a copy of the Student Workbook during the training, but the individuals would not be certified to teach Rent Well courses or authorized to give out graduation certificates. The fee for the 2-day training is $200.
