Specialist in Housing Credit Management Exam - Live Online

The Specialist in Housing Credit Management Exam will be offered in an online format ONLY.  Those wishing to sit for the exam on site will need to bring a lap-top or tablet to the exam.

The Specialist in Housing Credit Management® (SHCM®) certification has been developed by the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA) especially for management professionals involved with properties developed and operated under the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. The SHCM is designed by management professionals for management professionals to ensure they have attained the knowledge, experience and competence required to excel in the housing credit property management industry.

As experienced affordable housing management professionals know, the LIHTC program is the primary production tool for creating new affordable housing properties across every state in the country, and it is also the most important tool for rehabilitating and preserving the nation’s existing stock of aging affordable housing. To maximize their careers, management professionals in the affordable housing industry must be able to demonstrate their experience and expertise in mastering the complex requirements of the LIHTC program. Earning your SHCM enables you to do just that.

The SHCM is offered in association with the National Apartment Association Education Institute (NAAEI) and LeadingAge, formerly the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA). Click here for press release (PDF).

Development of the SHCM exam was based on an exacting process established for national certification programs to ensure the exam is a reliable and pyschometrically valid testing tool for its subject matter. NAHMA retained a well-respected third-party consultant to assist in this process. For a full report on how the SHCM exam was developed, please click here. The test questions on the SHCM exam will be reviewed and updated on an annual basis.

Preparing for New REAC & NSPIRE Rules - A One Day Workshop on New REAC Rules and How to Achieve the Best Results Today

Seminar 9:00 - 5:00 * Lunch Included

10% Discount for groups of four or more.

This workshop is designed to discuss the fundamentals of REAC Compliance and the UPCS Inspection Protocols, as well as all of the recent updates and expected changes. This session includes a high-level review of the UPCS Inspection Code, REAC Scoring, the new rules, and updates. This classroom session is a terrific resource for managers, maintenance, and executives who want to understand what needs to be addressed on their properties at all times to ensure that the property is well prepared at all times and non-compliance risks can be identified and eliminated.

In 2018, HUD stated that there would be a new direction for REAC - one that places focus on everyday compliance, inspections that are able to accurately portray what the condition of the property is like for residents on an average day, not just after a maintenance fire drill. Proper physical compliance on properties needs to be a vigilant process, one that is constantly in motion and constantly striving to be better

NPSIRE - A New Inspection Protocol and Process for HUD Properties 

HUD has indicated a new series of changes to the inspection process, creating a new inspection protocol - NSPIRE - which promises to reinvent the inspection process.

The new changes require so much more than a new inspection checklist - it presents organizational challenges, including new demands on leadership and teamwork.

We will review both what the future will bring and what needs to be done during the transition to NSPIRE.

Who Should Attend This Seminar?

This course is more than a maintenance course, as it discusses regulatory changes and requirements, methods for effective oversight and daily planning to ensure properties are always in full compliance. From property managers to maintenance professionals, to regional and executive staff, understanding the requirements for REAC compliance is a vital part of being an affordable housing industry stakeholder.

Understanding the Current REAC Rules and Preparing Properties to be Ready Everyday

Understanding REAC Inspections 

Understanding REAC Compliance is about understanding that the physical requirements for a property are no different than the regulatory requirements - you have to have a discerning eye for issues at all times, set processes in place to double-check your physical compliance. During this workshop, after covering the new updates, requirements, and anticipated new direction for HUD REAC, we will review the existing requirements and how you can best prepare your properties for REAC Inspections.

Preparing for REAC with 14-day Notice for Inspections

How do you prepare your properties for REAC inspections with the new reality that inspections can occur with limited notice and incredibly limited ability to modify the inspection scheduling date.

  • Non-Industry Standard Repairs: Understand the requirements for non-industry repairs and how you can best ensure that all repairs are done to meet these standards.
  • Essential UPCS/REAC Deficiencies:We will review the UPCS Inspection Code and discuss the issues that are most common and typically carry the highest-scoring values. We review the deficiencies to discuss how to recognize the issues, repair within industry standards and understand how to best recognize the issues.
