HUD/FHA Training Courses

How are you complying with the MAP and LEAN requirement that "Lenders must establish a written development plan for underwriter trainees that includes a combination of commercial/multifamily training courses and on the job experience"? Are you finding it difficult to obtain MAP and LEAN specific and relevant training courses for your staff?

Over the past 15+ years, D3G has been invited to various client meetings and conferences to provide educational programs on all things HUD/FHA as well as topics related to environmental, engineering, energy, and sustainable items. D3G has performed training for MAP Lenders, State Finance Housing Agencies, and HUD multifamily field offices. And recently, D3G was accredited by the Building Performance Institute (BPI) as a technical training affiliate and testing center. This training accreditation combined with D3G’s unsurpassed HUD/FHA multifamily and healthcare assessment experience makes for a powerful combination.

We are pleased to offer HUD MAP and LEAN training to our clients, focusing on the environmental, engineering, and AEC issues revolving around housing and healthcare. Training can be arranged to fit your schedule, can be provided in person or electronically, and upon completion will be documented with training certificates. D3G has established training modules for MAP Chapters 5, 6 and 9, or we can customize training to meet your staff’s needs.

Examples of pertinent training courses include:

Environmental Training

Is a VEC a REC?

 
ASTM E 2600-10 Training – Per Section 9.3.A.1.j of the HUD MAP Guide, a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment must include an initial Tier 1 "non-invasive" Vapor Encroachment Screen (VES) to determine if there is a potential for vapors to occur in the subsurface below existing and/or proposed on-site structures. Learn what D3G does to complete the Tier 1 "non-invasive" VES and what the next steps are if the results of the Tier 1 "non-invasive" VES indicate that a Vapor Encroachment Condition (VEC) exists, a VEC likely exists or a VEC cannot be ruled out. If it is determined that a VEC is likely or cannot be ruled out, then it must be deemed a Recognized Environmental Condition (REC) for the purposes of the Phase I ESA. Knowing and understanding the process could save you time and money on your next deal.
