Public Housing Specialist


This public housing training allows you to learn three NMA seminars — eligibility, rent calculation, and occupancy — in one week! Final rule changes regarding social security number verification and EIV mandatory implementation are incorporated in this training, as well as the most recent HUD guidance on community service. Instead of three separate certification exams, one exam at the end of the training allows participants to get high-quality, up-to-date training on all three topics. Updated for HOTMA!
