First Time Homebuyer Education Classes

We offer In-Person and Online First Time Homebuyer Education Classes.

Project Sentinel provides a HUD 8-hour First Time Homebuyer Education class once a month.  Please note that the class includes the mandatory completion of the agency's Assessment prior to attending the class. 


Please inquire about special accommodations if participants have a mobile, visual, or hearing impairment. 

The classes meet HUD requirements for obtaining an 8-hour HUD certificate and is valid in all United States territories.  This certificate is required in order to participate in various BMR (Below Market Rate), BMP (Below Market Program), and DPA (Down Payment Assistance) homebuyer programs and or loans. For additional information, please see the "Frequently Asked Questions" section below.
