"The Housing Quality Standards session was very informative and enjoyable. We will recommend it to anyone working on HUD or related housing projects." Kent P.

This workshop will lead you to certification as a Housing Quality Inspector. Housing Quality Standards (HQS) are used as the basic inspection criteria for many federal and state housing programs. While the HQS inspection criteria have been in use for many years, there remain numerous inspection protocols addressing the safe operation of mechanical and electrical systems that are not well defined. This training provides a framework for conducting a basic HQS inspection and provides the inspector with additional skills and knowledge required to assess many of the health and safety issues surrounding mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems.

In addition to classroom training, there will be a mock inspection conducted as part of this workshop. Teams will review all criteria in the inspection and present to the group those items needing remedy.

An exam will be offered for those who wish to become certified.
