- Practical exam: After the day 3 training, staff will be sent a login to the training site and a fake character bio. Staff will be expected to enter the client information to the training website. Staff must showcase a proficiency in the system and a clear understanding of HUD concepts. If staff do not pass the practical exam, they will be given next steps on a case by case basis.
Once staff pass all of these sections, they will be issued login credentials to HMIS for their agency. If staff need access to OneHome, they will need to complete the coordinated entry course that will be assigned to them in the LMS.
