Continuing Education

In order to assist affiliate staff  and volunteers with staying current on current mortgage regulations and construction site safety, Habitat for Humanity of Indiana, the state support office, coordinates continuing education opportunities for the 53 affiliates across the state.  

Qualified Loan Originator Training

Each affiliate is required to have at least one staff member or volunteer complete Qualified Loan Originator Training, annually, in order to keep up with the dynamic mortgage and fair housing regulatory environment at the state and national levels.  The training is required to maintain good standing with Habitat for Humanity International.

Competent Person Safety Training

Safety first is one of our mantras!  Volunteers are key to Habitat's ability to work toward a world where everyone has a decent place to live and we strive to make the experience enjoyable, rewarding and accident free.  We begin each day on the construction site with a review of basic safety practices.  Affiliates are required to have at least one staff member or volunteer complete Competent Person Safety Training, annually.  The training includes a review of Habitat best practices and an overview of OSHA regulations.  The training is required to maintain good standing with Habaitat for Humanity International.

State Conference

Habitat for Humanity has a deeply rooted tradition of sharing ideas, successful practices and teamwork.  The state support organziation organizes the annual conference at the end of build season so affiliate leaders, board members, staff and volunteers can celebrate successes, showcase expertise and network with colleagues from around the state.  The conference includes presentations by national and local experts on topics related to regulations, fundraising, leadership, construction techniques and potential partnerships.
