Join our Senior Trainer Ronnette Smith while she provides information to successfully house those in need of Rural Development housing. This 10-hour course includes the optional online Housing Compliance Manager of Rural Development “HCM-R” designation exam.


Day one of this training will start with an overview of the RD Programs handbook HB-2-3560 and the regulation 3560. We will then cover the housing programs under section 515 including family, elderly and congregate properties, and how to maintain them. This section is followed by marketing and the application process. This includes the Civil Rights Act and the Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan (AFHMP) which covers application requirements, wait lists, and the required notices. We then discuss the project occupancy requirements on family, elderly and congregate properties, and how to calculate income (7CFR .560.153 refers to 24 CFR 5.609 & 11) and assets along with allowable deductions and determining rent.


Day two covers the Recertification process for annual recerts, recerts due because of income or occupancy changes, and ineligible tenants. Lease requirements, tenant warning and termination concludes day two with a final review of the course.


Our proprietary Housing Compliance Manager for RD Exam (HCM-R) is an open book exam with 100 questions. You will be given up to three hours to complete the exam on the second day and will need a score of 67% or higher to pass. Those who pass will receive their HCM-R designation.


Each attendee who completes this course will receive a manual and a certificate of attendance of 10 continuing education hours. Login details, training material, and online exam instructions will be emailed to all attendees one week prior to the class they are registered for.
