In addition to the training materials, a practice exam is available to help prepare for and pass the HUD Housing Counselor Certification Exam. Developed to meet the same knowledge and skills proficiencies as the certification exam, the practice exam is offered in a format similar to the certification exam and poses similar questions, but does not replicate any questions from the certification exam. 

There is no cost for the practice exam, and you are not required to be a housing counselor or be employed by a housing counseling agency to take it.
