HUD Housing Counseling Certification Prep Course                $500.00

A fast-paced three week online course that will cover each of the six topic areas required by the Dodd Frank Act.  This course is intended to be a supplemental class that will assist experienced Housing Counselors as a refresher in key areas.  New Housing Counselors that have little to no experience in the topics listed below are recommended to take more intensive stand-alone courses on each topic such as the other courses offered through NHNLA.

The Dodd Frank requirement indicates that Housing Counselors must be proficient in the following six areas:

  1. Financial management
  2. Property maintenance
  3. Responsibilities of homeownership and tenancy
  4. Fair housing laws and requirements
  5. Housing affordability
  6. Avoidance of, and responses to, rental and mortgage delinquency and avoidance of eviction and mortgage default.

Scholarships are also offered with any of the eLearning courses.
