Housing counselors: Get certified

Friday, November 22, 2019


Housing counselors who assist consumers with pre-purchase, foreclosure prevention and rental counseling must be certified by August 1, 2020.

For those intending to become a HUD-certified housing counselor, they must pass an exam and work for a HUD-approved housing counseling agency. Certification is intended to improve and standardize counseling services and help prevent scams and discrimination.

Unidos US also offers certification training. Scholarships are available for full courses and webinars on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Housing Counseling certification requirement is mandated by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.
