FHC Certified Training

  • October 24, 2019 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

The requirements set forth in the Fair Housing Act and Section 504 regulations are enormously complex and far-reaching.  NAHMA’s Fair Housing Compliance (FHC) course trains managers to understand these complex regulations, and provides clear instructions on fair housing laws.  The comprehensive, practical training manual for this course includes ready-to-use documents and forms to conduct a Section 504 Self-Evaluation and sample Transition Plan.

The course teaches a step-by-step approach to determining the administrative and financial feasibility of making units accessible.  Not only does NAHMA’s Fair Housing course cover the application process, which includes screening, accepting, and rejecting applicants, it also presents instructions on developing company-wide policies and procedures.

The Fair Housing Compliance is a required course for NAHMA’s NAHP certification program.  All participants who complete the course will be given a voucher number to take the online exam at their location of choice.  Students are notified immediately of their test results upon completion of the exam.
