Online Course CPO Certification Class @ WEB CERTIFICATION
Jun 8 @ 8:00 am – Jun 10 @ 4:30 pm

The Certified Professional of Occupancy (CPO) course is a comprehensive program offered by the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA) for property management staff responsible for site compliance of HUD affordable housing developments. It is the only occupancy course that covers the HUD 4350.3 Handbook in its entirety, with specific handbook references cited in the margins of the course text.

Registration includes a copy of the 4350.3 Handbook, CPO course materials, and the Examination Fee.  The program includes three days of instruction.  Within three weeks following the training, you will then spend another half day taking the exam at your property and convenience.

Participants who successfully pass the exam will receive a CPO certificate and lapel pin.  All CPOs are listed in an annual, national certification directory.  The CPO is a requirement for NAHMA’s National Affordable Housing Professional (NAHP®) certification program.

Fees and reasonable expenses for the course are an approved project expense. It is recommended that course attendees have a basic knowledge of the HUD 4350.3 Handbook prior to registration.

See the detailed Agenda page for complete details for this three- day course, as daily class times vary.

BRING paper and a pen or pencil to take notes.
