All MPDU sales training classes (First Time Homebuyer Class, Orientation Seminar, and Application Session) will now be offered online. Please note that ALL CLASSES ARE VALID FOR ONLY TWO YEARS. If you have not applied to the MPDU program within two years of taking any of the classes, you must re-take those classes before you can apply to the program. If you need to re-take the First Time Homebuyer class, register here.
The Application Session class is being renamed the Application Tutorial. Registration for the online Application Tutorial is not available yet. In order to limit potential virus exposure and improve security, the MPDU office is developing a confidential online system for submitting new and renewal certificate applications. If you have already taken both the First Time Homebuyer class and the Orientation Seminar, further information about the online Application Tutorial and new procedures for submitting application materials will be available in mid-to late October. Please check the website for updates.
In order to learn about the MPDU sales program and receive further instructions for applying, you need to attend an MPDU Orientation Seminar. (Note: If you are a current MPDU certificate holder and wish to renew your application, click here.) All MPDU Orientation Seminars will be held online using the Zoom platform. At least one adult member of each household must attend.
Before you attend the Orientation Seminar, you will need to attend a First-Time Home Buyers class and receive a 'Certificate of Completion'. Click here for more information and to register for the First-Time Home Buyers class.
The MPDU program will accept a Certificate of Completion from another first-time homebuyer class, but only if the class:

If you take a First Time Homebuyer class that is offered by an agency other than HCI, call 311 to submit the FTHB certificate from the other agency. The MPDU office will need to review and approve the certificate from the other agency before you will be able to sign up for the Orientation Seminar.
Each registered student MUST use a separate email address. Only one person per household should register. You must use the same email that you used when you signed up for the First Time Homebuyer class and spell your name the same way in order for your registration to be accepted.
Click the Register link next to the seminar you wish to attend to sign up for that MPDU Orientation Seminar. Please note that space is
limited, and the remaining available seats are shown for each class. If a particular class is full, you must select a different class. Registration
will be closed one week before the class is scheduled in order to allow time to send out the Zoom link.
After registering, you will receive an email with your Orientation ID number. Please print the email and keep it for your records. You will need to use
the Orientation ID number to cancel your registration online if you are unable to attend.
If you are having difficulty signing up, you may call MC311 at (240) 777-0311 or
click here to create an online service request.
Hearing-impaired individuals who are in need of accommodations must call (240) 777-0311 at least two weeks prior to the seminar they wish to attend.
Additional Orientation Seminars will be scheduled periodically. Please revisit this page for additional registration opportunities.
