NSPIRE Standards and Protocols Training
Whether you're managing a HUD or LIHTC property — or any of the many voucher programs — NSPIRE is now the universal inspection standard. US Housing Consultants is offering the first-of-its-kind comprehensive NSPIRE certification course for all funding programs and applications. And we will do it all in a single-day course. USHC offers you a thorough analysis of every NSPIRE standard and how to recognize deficiencies, conduct inspections, and understand the operational implications of the change from HQS and UPCS to NSPIRE.

Serious Changes Require Serious Curriculum
NSPIRE’s requirements for components will align with International Building Code (IBC), International Code Council (ICC), and UFAS/ADA Accessibility Requirements, as well as fire and life safety standards. The ACE Certification course addresses the basis for NSPIRE standards while conveying what the complete requirements are rather than simply glossing over the bare minimum standards. Without a complete deep-dive, properties could make changes to that meet NSPIRE standards but end up creating fair housing violations. The NSPIRE ACE Certification seminar provides a full understanding of all standards that is both comprehensive and clear to all.

NSPIRE Means Housing Compliance
The new physical inspection requirements are more than just a checklist. They're a new way of thinking that everyone from executives to property managers, professional inspectors, and maintenance professionals need to understand. Those accustomed to conducting HQS and UPCS Inspections must understand the step-by-step requirements of what makes something a deficiency. They also need to know how to test the components properly. In short, everyone from the boardroom to the boiler room needs to understand all NSPIRE standards thoroughly.

What Does the NSPIRE ACE Certification Course Include?
US Housing Consultants will explain NSPIRE policies and procedures (broken down by funding program), the score on the REAC scoring process, and an in-depth analysis of each NSPIRE standard. In this 7-hour course, we explain standards and deficiencies, show detailed examples, and describe the step-by-step requirements for each component required to be inspected under NSPIRE. After the course, attendees are invited to take an online exam to earn the ACE-NSPIRE Certification.
