US Housing Consultants has presented "Understanding REAC Inspections" to more than 10,000 participants, and one of the questions that we have been asked more than any other is "How do we handle inspector inconsistency?" Our answer has always been the same, - You have to be even better than they are at understanding the inspection protocol.
We are now offering a full-day course on UPCS and REAC Inspections that focuses on ways to make UPCS Inspection Protocol part of a plan to improve your property's performance, reduce costs, and create accountability. Perfecting UPCS Inspections is a full day training that explains the best methods for understanding why issues are considered to be deficiencies, how to recognize these areas, and most importantly, how to set your own higher standard above and beyond it all.
If you own, manage, or invest in HUD-financed or subsidized housing, one of the greatest risks to your property and company is failing a REAC Inspection. US Housing Consultants has worked with thousands of owners and managers since 2006 - preparing their properties, training their staff, and getting their operations back on track. Our experienced training staff can show you how to succeed at HUD REAC Inspections using strategic approaches that will work on any budget or timeline.
Other UPCS Training offered throughout the industry fixate on the measurements that make something a deficiency, and while that is important to understand if you want to be a UPCS Inspector, this training focuses on daily practices that will help you make sense of the fundamentals necessary to always keep your property in compliance.
This course includes an explanation of REAC Scoring, how to best prepare for inspections, and then how to recognize issues, not just by levels, but instead by the telltale signs of what inspectors are looking for. This course is informational, humorous, and educational for all members of your staff. This training is an explanation on how to know what a UPCS Inspection is, and then how you can move that knowledge to a plan to be even better than the minimum standards.
