Welcome to Rent Well

Rent Well, a program of Transition Projects, is a fifteen-hour tenant education course, focused on how to be a successful renter.  Topics include understanding a landlord’s expectations, budgeting, effective communication skills, maintaining a rental unit, and how to successfully move in and move out.

Rent Well is taught throughout Oregon and Washington by 250 certified instructors and counting. Each certified instructor has been through the Tenant Educator Academy, an intensive training on how to teach the course at their agency. The certified instructors also attend regular recertification trainings.

We believe that everyone deserves the right to live well, be well, and Rent Well.
