COAR offers Rapattoni classes for our MLS members each month over three Fridays (10am-11am). Rapattoni I covers the basics of utilizing our MLS website.

The third class, Rapattoni Input is required for all members that will be entering their own listings and must be taken before this feature will be available to members.
