Distance (online) Learning at NFHTA is technology enabled teaching and delivery outside the traditional classroom. The material covered in our distance learning courses is equivalent to that offered in the face-to-face sections of the same course. In fact, the content for our distance learning courses is the same as in our traditional instructor led courses; only the method of delivery is different. Students in NFHTA distance learning courses are expected to work through the entire curriculum during the month, to access the site at least 3-5 a week, and to complete the course within the timeframe.  We expect that the course requires approximately 8-10 hours per week, for a total amount of time similar to that which would be spent in an on-site class.

Yes. The core curriculum is a 5-week Fair Housing Investigator Certification Program designed to provide fair housing enforcement staff with knowledge and skills to conduct efficient and timely investigations throughout the country.  State and local agencies participating in the certification program and HUD staff, must take the Week 1 – 5 core curriculum courses in sequential order.

Yes. Relevant courses will be developed in consultation with FHAP, HUD FHEO, and FHIP personnel initially. Other courses will be developed in conjunction with needs and requests.
