NSPIRE Specialist Seminar w/ACE Certification -Los Angeles, CA 7/18/24

July 18 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT

Learn about NSPIRE and the future of REAC inspections! NSPIRE will be the “law of the land”. Join us and become an NSPIRE ACE.

NSPIRE Standards and Protocols Training

Whether you’re managing a HUD or LIHTC property — or any of the many voucher programs — NSPIRE will be 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 properly test the components. In short, everyone from the boardroom to the boiler room needs to thoroughly understand all NSPIRE standards.

What Does the NSPIRE 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 6-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. All attendees will receive a hard-copy, coil-bound reference manual.

What is the NSPIRE Accredited Compliance Expert (A.C.E.) Designation?

For individuals interested in acquiring the NSPIRE A.C.E. designation, there is an optional online exam available for purchase. Earning the A.C.E. designation signifies a proven comprehension of the updated inspection protocol.
