HO003 Fair Housing: Building Competency in Housing Counseling - Interactive Webinar Training

Are you ready for the HUD counselor certification? All housing counselors at HUD-approved counseling agencies must obtain the Housing Counselor certification for continued HUD funding!

This webinar training will help refresh your knowledge and skills in fair housing, one of the six major competencies emphasized in the HUD certification exam. This course will allow counselors to refresh their knowledge and skills in explaining how the federal Fair Housing Act affects renting, lending, appraising and selling of residential homes and which transactions are exempt. By taking this course, counselors will be better able to identify acts of discrimination in housing and assist clients to file complaints and receive protections mandated by law.

The webinar training will last 90-minutes and include resource materials, check-and-reflect activities, interactive polling, and participant Q&A with the faculty. A quiz will open at the conclusion of the session which must be passed in order to obtain a certificate and credit toward continuing education hours. Participants can access the training site upon registration and begin looking at the available resources prior to the live online training session. Participants will complete the quiz and print their certificate immediately after the live session.

This course provides 1.5 continuing education hours.
