Three Upcoming Training Opportunities for Homeownership Partners

VHDA is offering three training opportunities for our Homeownership partners in Southwest Virginia on Oct. 19 and 20. Please see our website for registration: vhda.com/partnertraining.

These trainings include:

VHDA Train the Trainer PLUS (Oct. 19, 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.) 

Southwest Virginia Association of REALTORS in Abingdon

Learn about VHDA's Homebuyer Education Class and how you can facilitate the class in your community. Once you complete this training, you’ll be listed as a VHDA Qualified Trainer on vhda.com. You’ll be trained how to teach or facilitate a VHDA Homebuyer Class and authorized to sign certificates of completion for individuals who have completed the class. Each borrower applying for a VHDA loan must take the Homebuyer Education Class, either in person or online.

VHDA  Real Estate Professional Training:  The Key to Serving First-time Homebuyers (Oct. 19, 1 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.)

Southwest Virginia Association of REALTORS in Abingdon

Attending both trainings? VHDA will provide lunch! In this second session, you’ll learn about two of our newest products and how they can help first-time homebuyers purchase a home with zero down. VHDA's Down Payment Assistance Grant (DPA) and Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) program are great ways to make buying a home more affordable. In addition, this two-hour course will also provide valuable information about all VHDA loans. After you complete the training, you're qualified to join VHDA's Real Estate Agent Connection program. Benefits include a free listing on vhda.com/FindARealEstateAgent. It's also great training for nonprofits that would like to gain a better understanding of VHDA loan products.

Please note: To attend either the Train the Trainer PLUS or Real Estate Professional training, please register for the Train the Trainer PLUS session. Attendees may choose to attend one or the other class, or both.

VHDA Habitat Train the Trainer (Oct. 20, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.)
VHDA Southwest Virginia Housing Center in Wytheville

Learn about Habitat for Humanity’s Homebuyer Education Class and how you can facilitate, partner or provide oversight for the class in your community. This training is open to Habitat affiliates, educators, local governments and nonprofit HUD Housing Counseling Agencies. The Habitat Homebuyer Education Program is specific to Habitat homebuyers, and the curriculum differs from the VHDA Homebuyer Education class. This training will not qualify you to teach VHDA’s Homebuyer Education class, only the Habitat Homebuyer Education class. We encourage nonprofit partners to join us and consider the value of a partnership with a local Habitat affiliate.

Again, please see our website for registration at vhda.com/partnertraining.
