1. Will an early departure on the last day of the training session keep me from qualifying for certification?
Yes. Participants agree to remain in class through the duration of scheduled class time. You will not be eligible for a certificate of completion or able to access the certification exam if you leave early. On-site instructors are not authorized to make exceptions to this rule.
However, if you need to leave early due to flight schedules, we must be notified in writing five business days prior to the start of the course. In addition, you must be prepared to remain in class until at least 3:00 p.m. on the last day. You will also be responsible on the exam for all material covered that day.
2. Is course registration required if applying for a scholarship?
If you are awarded a scholarship, you will be internally pre-registered for the course. Registration is completed once you confirm your attendance at our training site. Do not register online, as you will be prompted for payment.
If you do not receive a scholarship, you can register for any course you wish to attend as long as there is space available. However, you are required to pay the full tuition of the course.
3. Are scholarship applicants accepted after the deadline has passed?
All scholarship applications are submitted internally through our website. Once the deadline has passed, access to the applications is closed and removed from the website.
4. How do I find my agency’s HUD number?
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issues a five-digit number to all of its certified agencies. If you do not know it, ask your administrator or office manager. You may also contact your local HUD representative. Since scholarships are based on HUD certification and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, the selection committee will only consider correctly completed applications with a valid HUD number.
5. How soon can I apply for a scholarship for on-site training?
We normally permit submissions for scholarships through our website about two months before the training begins. We encourage you to visit our website periodically to view the dates of our training courses so you can submit your application on time. Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
