DAY 2 & 3: Supporting and Strengthening Your Homebuyer Education Program

April 25, 2018 @ 8:30 am - April 26, 2018 @ 4:30 pm

Designing & Strengthening Your Homebuyer Education Program

Many of our practitioners have attended financial education and homebuyer instructor trainings, and are very familiar with different training curriculums.  This training will go a step further – looking at how to design a homebuyer education program, or strengthen an existing program.  Discussion will cover:

  • What should agendas cover?
  • What activities can should be included?
  • How should training modules be structured?


Through this training, participants will have an opportunity to:

  • Engage in hands-on activities to expand and practice their facilitation skills
  • Learn and test new interactive training activities
  • Create participants’ and trainers’ agendas
  • Develop pre- and post- training checklists
  • Learn new concepts related to adult education methodology

The training will provide valuable opportunities for peer sharing and discussions, and time to for participants to enhance and strengthen their new and their existing financial and homebuyer education programs.

Please note that light refreshments will be provided during the training, however breakfast and lunch will be “on your own” each day.

Note: This event also includes Understanding HERO (Homeownership Education Resource Organization), which is held on April 24, 2018.
