Pathways Home: A Native Homeownership Guide

Course Description

NAIHC is pleased to announce that we are now able to offer the "Pathways Home: A Native Homeownership Guide" train-the-trainer certification course. There is no registration fee for these courses. Seating is limited so you are encouraged to register early.

Participants will learn how to deliver a comprehensive homebuyer education program designed to help educate prospective Native Homebuyers on how to become successful homeowners. The curriculum is specifically tailored for Native American communities.

Participants will also learn the most effective methods to help potential homebuyers determine what is best for them—to build a new home or to buy an existing one. Other areas covered in this curriculum include understanding the mortgage loan process, how to prepare a family budget, how to improve credit profiles, how to avoid the pitfalls of predatory lending, and how to maintain a home and finances after purchase.

Instructors for these courses specialize in homebuyer education and bring culturally relevant teaching techniques to the classroom.

PLEASE NOTE: Pathways Home certification is effective for 3 years after the student has attended the course and been awarded a certificate. Pathways Home Instructors must have a current certificate to order Pathways Home student and instructor manuals for community based homebuyer education sessions.

NAIHC is developing a “Pathways Home Recertification” course, which will be offered September 5-7 in Denver, CO. If your certification has expired, please make plans to attend this course. More details will be posted as they become available.
