How to become a HECM Counselor:

HUD published requirements for HECM counselors via Mortgagee Letter 2009-47.  The main requirements are:


Executive Director/Program Manager Roles
Part of the HUD HECM roster application process includes having a manager at your counseling agency act as your Application Coordinator for FHA.  The application coordinator verifies your employment for HUD.


Once on the HUD HECM roster, you hold your roster status as a HECM counselor. The agency does not hold the roster status. You may work for more than one agency at a time, or you may change agencies at any time, and your roster status goes with you. However, you must keep your employment information up to date in FHA.
