This course focuses on the federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program. AHMA-NCH is an approved provider of training in support of the national Specialist in Housing Credit Management (SHCM) program.

The SHCM exam is not based on any one particular course or training. Rather, the SHCM is designed to reflect the professional competency of a housing credit manager with two years of experience in the field.

In order to become SHCM certified, applicants must demonstrate a minimum of two years of housing credit management employment experience, successfully accumulate a minimum of 12 hours of housing-credit-specific coursework or training by an approved provider, such as AHMA-NCH, sit for the SHCM exam, and submit their SHCM application and application fee.

Students will take the test at their convenience online. Proctors are required and guidelines for proctors will be distributed during the class.
