Home Buyer Education Training Options

Home Buyer Education can be completed either In-Class or On-Line.  Both options provide our clients with 8 hours of HUD-approved home buyer education, followed by a one-on-one counseling session.

The Home Buyer Education Program provides first-time home buyers with a clear understanding of household budgeting, sustainability, affordability and the home purchase process.  Course completion and one-on-one counseling are required to make certain all is done on our part to provide you the education and resources necessary to purchase and maintain your home.  The course fees are non refundable.  Terms and Conditions

During your counseling session, let your counselor know you are interested in one of the Beyond Housing Down Payment Assistance programs.  Please Note: Completion of the Course and Counseling are NOT a guarantee to receiving Down Payment Assistance.  Down Payment Assistance Qualifications

On-Line Training

Home Buyer Education can now be completed on-line, in English or Spanish.  You can proceed at your own pace, start and stop at your convenience, until the 8-hour course is completed.  The fee of $125.00 for on-line training can be paid with a debit card or credit card.

Beyond Housing will be notified when you have completed the on-line course and will contact you to schedule the counseling session.  Upon completion of the counseling session, Beyond Housing will provide your certificate.

Classroom Training

If you prefer a more interactive experience with industry leaders and other future home buyers, you may prefer the traditional classroom setting.  The fee for classroom training, including lunch, is $95.00.  Beyond Housing will provide your certificate upon completion of the class.
