  • Historic properties

Training Agenda

Training Prerequisite

Web-Based Instructional System for Environmental Review (WISER)

The training builds on a basic understanding of HUD environmental rules. For this reason, all registrants (regardless of prior experience and training attendance) must complete the free, self-paced online training tool, WISER, located on the HUD Exchange. Each module in WISER has a “Completion Quiz” that must be finished before attending the training. WISER contains 14 modules in total (15 for HUD staff), each taking 1-2 hours to complete. HUD staff must take “Getting Started: Part 50” but it is optional for non-HUD staff.

Who Should Attend?

The training is open to Region 7 and Region 8 state, tribal, and local government staff, HUD staff, as well as planning agencies, grant administrators, public housing authorities, and consultants who prepare NEPA environmental reviews for HUD-assisted projects.
