HUD BOOTCAMP HOSTED BY HBEI TEAM
On October 29-30, 2019, Tennessee Housing Development Agency’s (THDA) Homebuyer Education Initiative (HBEI) Team hosted a Boot Camp for the HUD Housing Counseling Exam Certification. Counselors and others came to Nashville for two days of intense training to help prepare for the exam and assist agencies with meeting HUD guidelines. The deadline for HUD’s Final Rule and certification is August 1, 2020.

The 40+ attendees from across the state received training from THDA’s own HUD Certified Housing Counselors, Kendra Love and Russell Catron. The pair co-facilitated all six HUD modules, over half of the Practice Exam, and shared resources for test anxiety, memorization techniques, learning styles, navigation on the HUD study site and psychometrics.

To date, several counselors have already taken the exam and three participants have passed the exam. This makes for a total of 13, in the THDA network, who are HUD approved. And the HBEI Team expects to receive more good reports.

THDA’s HBEI Housing Counseling Program received a $186,978 HUD Housing Counseling Grant for FY19 and THDA is a HUD Intermediary with five sub-agencies taking part in this grant. Representatives from all five of the sub-agencies attended the Exam Boot Camp.

THDA will continue to provide training, support, technical assistance and resources as the HUD August 1, 2020 deadline approaches.
