As the largest insurer of mortgages in the world, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is a major player in the United States’ real estate market and an equally important regulatory entity in the valuation profession. HUD’s Federal Housing Administration (FHA) program sets the standards for a large number of residential appraisals nationwide. In March 2015, HUD published the Single Family Housing Policy Handbook, also known as Handbook 4000.1, with an effective date of September 14, 2015.  Designed to be the “go-to” handbook for appraisers and lenders, this publication consolidates FHA requirements into one single authoritative source, instead of having requirements scattered throughout several different handbooks and mortgagee letters. Knowledge of the FHA Handbook will help ensure that the properties you appraise meet the government’s health, safety, and security standards. This course focuses on the FHA Handbook 4000.1 with emphasis on revisions to FHA appraisal requirements and protocols. In addition, students will learn how to effectively stay up-to-date with FHA requirements.

It appears I completed this FHA 4000.1 course in 2016 and wonder if it has changed since then or if this would be considered duplicating a course for continuing ed.

Asked by: Michael
It is the same course but since then the material has been updated many times since then to keep with current laws/regulations. If the last time you completed the course was 2016, you will be able to complete it now for CE credit without it being marked as duplicate.
