Housing Counseling FAQ

Once a Housing Counselor meets the requirements for HUD Housing Counselor certification are there requirements, similar to the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) Roster requirements, for continuing education and re-testing in order to maintain HUD certified housing counselor status?

No. Continuing education or re-testing is not currently a requirement for a HUD certified housing counselor to maintain HUD certified housing counselor certification. However, HECM Roster Counselors must still comply with outstanding continuing education and re-testing requirements specific to maintaining status on the HECM Counselor Roster.
