FAHRO Commissioner Certification


Why Do You Need It? Florida commissioners bring a varied array of experience, knowledge and wisdom to their roles as commissioners. FAHRO's Commissioner Certification works within this rich diversity to ensure everyone has basic skills and a current knowledge base to be prepared for inherent challenges associated with their duties. It is a useful resource (regardless of the number of years served) and it demonstrates a tangible commitment to making responsible decisions to your funders and the public at large.

What Is It? Commissioner Certification is a series of three independent seminars that are one-day in duration each. Each day of certification training is offered by a state or national expert for the topic being covered. All of the topics are generally agreed upon by those who provide affordable housing in Florida as being essential to successful leadership.

How To Get It?You must complete all three one-day seminars to obtain certification. We welcome you to register for all three seminars, but if time doesn't allow it- you may register for just one or two classes with the understanding that you must complete all three seminars within a twelve month period to be certified. These courses will be available any time you wish to complete them!

How To Maintain It? Certification is good for three years. To renew it, you will be asked to submit a nominal administrative fee and proof of completion of one commissioner-oriented educational program during the renewal period. Examples of suitable programs include those provided by FAHRO, HUD, NOAAH, HDLI, PHADA, NAHRO, SERC, or CLPHA.

I'm Ready, Now What? Click on the link at the bottom of the page to our web training portal. It will take you to a registration form and give you the option to purchase classes. When you purchase the course you will be asked to provide a username and password.  Write these down because they will need to be entered in the "UN and PW" fields on the top right-hand corner of the screen to reaccess the training if you stop for a break. (Note: These usernames/passwords do not change your username/password.) Each course contains a series of videos followed by questions to answer. Once you have completed all three sections of training, you will be considered a FAHRO Certified Commissioner and you will receive a certificate, which will be mailed to your housing authority.
