Alternatives Now Available for In-Person Homebuyer Education

Dear Homebuyer Education Instructors,

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation we now have the following temporary options for our in-person classes:

1) Online Class

The fee for our approved online class is temporarily reduced to $25 from $50. The reduced fee is effective March 17 through May 17, 2020, but is subject to change.

2) Virtual Classroom

We are temporarily allowing instructors to use Zoom (or another virtual classroom platform) to provide classes virtually.

Please note: Prior approval is required. Before you use Zoom the first time for your classes, email Bill Conner and explain in writing:

1) How you will gather contact and demographic information for each attendee to be forwarded to us after class;
2) How you will ensure that each attendee is present for the full 5 hours;
3) How you will ensure that each attendee receives their certificate.

If you have another virtual classroom platform that you wish to use, please contact Bill to review.

Use of a virtual classroom is only effective March 17 through May 17, 2020, but is subject to change.

Thank you for your patience during this challenging time and as always, thank you for the time you spend teaching the public to be better informed homebuyers and homeowners!

If you have any additional questions, please email Corinna Obar
