The online course can be taken 24/7 in your own home at your own pace. eHome America's program is HUD-accepted and based on the NeighborWorks America Realizing the American Dream curriculum, and meets the National Industry Standards for homebuyer education. After completing the 8-hour online course, homebuyers are required to complete a one-hour follow-up session with a HomeSmartNY member agency in order to receive their Certificate of Completion which helps qualify for various first-time homeownership programs.
