Offered  in association with
ADU University
Providing education, training and certification for the California Association of ADU Professionals


The signature offering of the CA Association of ADU Professionals, this course is designed to provide real estate professionals with an introduction to history and current status of accessory dwelling units: the market conditions that have made them desirable, current State and Local laws, as well as impacts from accessory dwelling units on specific property valuations.


Locally focused and area-specific, it includes the most  up-to-date information about current California State and municipal rules and regulations that permit or restrict ADU development. By the completion of the course a realtor will feel confident in consulting with a client or potential client about units or potential units on their property or on a property they might wish to purchase. 

Upon completion of the course and a certification exam, participants will be awarded a Certified ADU Specialist designation by the CA Association of ADU Professionals, and are eligible for listing on the organization website.  DRE Continuing Education Credits are also available (approval pending).
