For training on UPCS and REAC inspection processes, US Housing Consultants offers several distinct packages. We have full day sessions that detail all of the UPCS violations, and we offer shorter speaking engagement sessions that provide an overview of the process and how to best prepare for the inspection. We also offer sessions that combine a basic overview with practical examples and a mock REAC Inspection. The variety of seminars means we can provide the most effective package for you and your company or organization.
US Housing Consultants provides training on REAC Inspections at least 50 times each year, training thousands of people on the "ins and outs" of the inspection code so they can get the best score possible. Our seminars have been presented to more than 20,000 people since 2005 and provide clear, usable insights for managers, investors, and owners of HUD and LIHTC properties.
We offer a variety of seminars, including:
Our private REAC training seminars address all of the parts of compliance that are frequently missed by other similarly marketed learning products. Often, property managers get in the habit of judging a property’s needs based on what they believe they learned during their last inspection. The problem with this is that many inspectors can be inconsistent, and some are simply less knowledgeable than others. Therefore, it is vital not to base your guidelines for compliance off of previous inspections.
Our goal is to help you not only get your property in compliance but to keep it that way. We want you to understand the daily practices that will keep you in compliance. The incentive to get a good score on a REAC inspection goes beyond avoiding fines. A good score affects a property’s value while also leading to less frequent inspections. The knowledge we provide can help you develop a plan to be even better than the minimum standards.
Our private REAC training seminars allow you educate your entire staff at a location of your choosing. This option allows you to educate multiple people on your staff about the steps that are necessary for REAC compliance. As we say, it’s important to understand all aspects of compliance, from the boiler room to the boardroom. This is why many people on your staff understand what needs to be done to keep each aspect of the property in compliance. What’s more, our private seminars are significantly more affordable than our competitors. For only $2,500 (travel paid separately) you can train up to 25 people on your staff. If you want to train more than 25 people, it’s an additional $50 per person.
Our Hands-On REAC Training allows our experts to focus their attention on your specific property, which means very individualized instruction. When we come to your property, we can give more detailed suggestions, so that there isn’t any confusion about your specific property needs. We will give you the information you need to perform a “worse case scenario” pre-REAC inspection and a complete explanation of how to address those issues. As with our Private REAC Training, you can have up to 25 staff members participate in the hands-on training session. This training empowers your staff and prepares them to recognize problems on your properties that can later be identified as deficiencies during a REAC inspection, and it also gives you the confidence to know they have the tools to maintain them.
We provide training that helps you understand LIHTC compliance inspections so that you can avoid the consequences that come with noncompliance. At US Housing Consultants, we understand that it can be difficult to differentiate between various types of requirements. That is why we separate REAC rules and those that are part of the UPCS Inspection Code as it relates to the 8823 Audit Guide. Our full day course addresses UPCS and UFAS violations and educates participants on how to determine noncompliance. We will create a custom guidebook for your agency that includes specifics about your area’s regulations.
US Housing Consultants has partnered with National Church Residences, one of the country's leading not-for-profit property management companies, to design a web-based version of our Dynamic REAC and UPCS Compliance Training course.
This is a self-paced training, not a webinar, meaning that you do not have to commit to being in front of your computer at any certain time of the day to access the course features.
This five-part online course is an entirely web-based and includes the best of modern Learning Management Systems (LMS), with a go-at-your-own-pace model, interactive video, and testing as your go to ensure that you and your staff understand the expectations of REAC Inspectors.
The course includes:
We have speakers available for your next company seminar or event. Our 90-minute and 180-minute segments are well designed and pack a lot of information into a short amount of time. We address a number of topics including; Understanding REAC Inspections, Unit Inspections for Property Managers/Administrators, Math and Misconceptions—Mastering REAC Appeals, and Understanding Section 504 and UFAS. Our speakers combine humor and knowledge so that sessions are both enjoyable and informative.
