During the month of December 2022, A. J. Johnson will be partnering with the MidAtlantic Affordable Housing Management Association for two in-person training sessions intended for real estate professionals, particularly those in the affordable multifamily housing field. Following the in-person training sessions, AJ will be providing a review of testable areas and in-person administration of the Housing Credit Certified Professional (HCCP©) exam. The following sessions will be presented:
December 13: Intermediate LIHTC Compliance (In-person training in Richmond, VA) – Designed for more experienced managers, supervisory personnel, investment asset managers, and compliance specialists, this program expands on the information covered in the Basics of Tax Credit Site Management. A more in-depth discussion of income verification issues is included as well as a discussion of minimum set-aside issues (including the Average Income Minimum Set-Aside), optional fees and use of common areas. The Available Unit Rule is covered in great detail, as are the requirements for units occupied by students. Attendees will also learn the requirements relating to setting rents at a tax-credit property. This course contains some practice problems but is more discussion oriented than the Basic course. A calculator is required for this course.
December 14: Advanced LIHTC Compliance (In-person training in Richmond, VA) – This full-day training is intended for senior management staff, developers, corporate finance officers, and others involved in decision-making with regard to how LIHTC deals are structured. This training covers complex issues such as eligible and qualified basis, applicable fraction, credit calculation (including first-year calculation), placed-in-service issues, rehab projects, tax-exempt bonds, projects with HOME funds, Next Available Unit Rule, employee units, mixed-income properties, the Average Income Minimum Set-Aside, vacant unit rule, and dealing effectively with State Agencies. Individuals who take both two days of training will be provided with study materials and a practice exam to assist in preparation for the HCCP exam, to be administered on December 15.
December 15: Review of testable areas and administration of the Housing Credit Certified Professional (HCCP©) exam (In-person exam in Richmond, VA). Following the two days of intensive and comprehensive LIHTC training, AJ will provide a review of program requirements and will administer the HCCP exam in person.
These sessions are part of the year-long collaboration between A. J. Johnson and MidAtlantic AHMA and is designed to provide affordable housing professionals with the knowledge needed to effectively manage the complex requirements of the various agencies overseeing these programs.
