If you are a new Service Coordinator working at a HUD property, you are required by HUD to earn 36 training contact hours your first year, and 12 every year after that to meet the HUD requirements for Service Coordinators. Luckily, there are some great resources to support you in this effort! Here are the steps we recommend you take:
STEP 1: Become a member of the American Association of Service Coordinators (AASC).
STEP 2: Take the SC101 Fundamentals of Service Coordination (version 2016) program (7 training contact hours)
STEP 3: Complete the Professional Service Coordinator (PSC) Program (18.75 training contact hours)
STEP 4: Take various webinars weekly provided by AASC (1.5 training contact hours/webinar)
STEP 5: Attend the annual AASC National Service Coordinator Conference (up to 17 CEUs)
