A comprehensive course for managers of affordable housing
The Certified Professional of Occupancy (CPO) course is a comprehensive program for affordable housing property management staff. Created by the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA), on the HUD Handbook 4350.3. This course has been updated to reflect all changes in the 4350.3 Handbook. The CPO is a required course for the National Affordable Housing Professional (NAHP) certification. The CPO course covers all portions of the 4350.3, including eligibility, occupancy standards, tenant screening, assets and income, the lease and rent computations, etc. It provides exceptional occupancy information for all types of affordable property management staff. Each participant will receive a link to download an electronic copy of the 4350.3 HUD Handbook.

Participants who successfully pass the exam will receive a CPO certificate and lapel pin. All CPOs will be listed in an annual, national certification directory. Each year following certification, all CPOs will need to submit a modest renewal fee in order to maintain their certification.

Fees and reasonable expenses for the course are an approved project expense. It is recommended that course attendees have a basic knowledge of the HUD 4350.3 prior to registration.

This 20-hour virtual CPO course will follow the 3-Day CPO agenda and
is composed of four (4) 5-hour interactive Zoom meeting training sessions and a take home four (4) hour certification exam that must be taken within 3 weeks of completing the course. Each participant will receive the Zoom meeting credentials and the supplemental materials via email two (2) business days prior to the course. Each participant will receive a physical copy of the NAHMA CPO manual to the mailing address associated with your registration. You will use the manual and supplemental materials during the four (4) training sessions.
