Training Updates:

Staying engaged and informed is extremely important, and we connect everyone in our industry to the tools and resources they need to succeed. Every year we host a Conference & Expo in Southern California, Arizona, and Nevada. Your safety is a top priority and therefore all scheduled Conference and Expos were cancelled for 2020.

We look forward to planning and seeing everyone at the annual Conference and Expo’s in 2021. These events will offer updates in the housing industry, legislative changes, latest training topics, Vendor Expos, and more.

Webinar: The Effects of Social Distancing on Older Adults

  • October 19, 2021 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The outbreak of COVID-19 may have been especially stressful for older adults and may contribute to increased feelings of loneliness. Many people continue to confine themselves to indoor spaces and communicate with their loved ones only through the use of electronic tools. This may have a detrimental effect on mental health, especially for adults over the age of 65, who may be less comfortable using electronic devices. Social isolation in seniors has been linked to increased depression and suicidality, as well as to increased pro-inflammatory and decreased anti-viral immune responses.
After successfully completing this module, participants will be able to:

  • Enhance knowledge of behavioral issues associated with untreated mental health conditions
  • Increase awareness of treatment and medication options
  • Identify tips for addressing loneliness and depression
  • Understand the impact of social distancing and increased isolation on older adults
  • Explore strategies for improving mental and emotional health during Covid pandemic

Certified Virtual Training: CPO

  • September 21, 2021 - September 30, 2021 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

The Certified Professional of Occupancy (CPO) course is a comprehensive program offered by the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA) for property management staff in affordable developments, including LIHTC combined with HUD and Public Housing projects undergoing RAD conversions to PBRA. It is the only occupancy course that covers the HUD 4350.3 Handbook in its entirety, with specific handbook references cited in the margins of the course text.

Each participant will receive a portal link to download an electronic copy of the 4350.3 Handbook and other course materials. You will use the manual and supplemental materials during the four (4) training sessions. The program is composed of occupancy focused instruction and has been updated to reflect all changes in the 4350.3 Handbook. Participants will receive a voucher from their hosting AHMA to take the CPO exam independently on their own at their home office, or property. Students that successfully pass the exam will receive a CPO certificate and lapel pin. All CPOs will be listed in an online national certification directory. The CPO is a requirement for NAHMA’s National Affordable Housing Professional (NAHP ® ) certification program.

Fees and reasonable expenses for the course are an approved project expense for front-line staff. Although this course provides exceptional occupancy information for all types of affordable property management staff, it is recommended that course attendees have a basic knowledge of the HUD 4350.3 Handbook prior to registration. It is recommended that attendees bring a highlighter, a calculator and Post It notes to the course.

This 20-hour virtual CPO course will follow the 2.5-Day CPO agenda and is composed of four (4) 5-hour interactive Zoom meeting training sessions and a take home four (4) hour certification exam that must be taken within 2 weeks of completing the course. The following four dates are when the CPO training is scheduled to take place from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm (PST):

  • Tuesday, September 21st
  • Thursday, September 23rd
  • Tuesday, September 28th
  • Thursday, September 30th
