An ADU class for real estate professionals called All About ADUs for Brokers. This class is through Earth Advantage, a partner organization based in Portland, OR and Bend, OR.  It is also offered online. Here’s the Oregon CE version and the non-CE National version.

This half-day course is intended for brokers who need to increase their knowledge about ADU development, in order to respond increasing client demand for properties with ADU potential.

The course helps brokers understand the basic planning and building regulations for ADU development in order to better assist their clients.

By attending either the 7 hour ADU Class for Homeowners or the half day class for realtors, brokers can qualify to earn an ADU Specialist designation.

Both ADU classes provide continuing education units, 4 CEUs and 7 CEUs respectively.

Testimonials for the All About ADUs for Brokers class

Having just gained the Earth Advantage Broker accreditation, the “All About ADUs” course was a great supplement to my knowledge base. Perhaps more importantly, I feel I have th growing expertise to lead in the field in my market. 


Between the population growth, changing demographics and recent UGB changes in Bend we have a perfect storm for a massive surge in interest in ADUs. This course was extremely helpful for understanding the theoretical, financial, legal and logistical issues around this up-and-coming housing option. 


I found the ADU class very informative especially the take on how Portland views growth in the coming years, Every Broker should have to take this class, especially if they live, work and sell homes in Portland. 


Kol is undoubtedly the most consistently committed and educated local industry expert in the Portland metro area, and his classes are nothing short of insightful & informative. Thanks, Earth Advantage!
