    Catalyst  Program: Core Curriculum Certification


    The Core Curriculum Certification is designed to improve the skills of affordable housing providers in the state. Funded by the Florida Housing Finance Corporation’s Affordable Housing Catalyst Program, this curriculum consists of five required workshops and one elective workshop. These five required workshops are offered twice a year throughout the state. Participants in the core program may choose one of any of the remaining workshops on the schedule as an elective. Participants will have two years from the date of the first core workshop taken to complete the curriculum.


    The core curriculum is designed for those housing professionals with less than five years of Florida-based affordable housing experience.


    For each required course, two to four hours of pre-course work will be required to be completed and submitted at least one week prior to the workshop. Once participants have completed the required courses, he or she will receive a certification of completion of the core curriculum for housing professionals in Florida.


    Currently, the following workshops are core curriculum requirements:

    • Planning for your Community’s Affordable Housing Needs
    • Development Process
    • Understanding the Income Qualification Process
    • Enhancing your Housing Strategies
    • Homebuyer Counseling and Training


    Note: All workshops are open to those not wishing to participate in the core curriculum.
