FHFA launched the Housing Finance Examiner Commissioning Program in June 2013.
The main objective of the program is to provide examiners with broad-based knowledge to conduct successful risk-based examinations.
A Housing Finance Examiner Commission will indicate whether an examiner is qualified to lead the examination of a major risk area at Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home Loan Banks. The program combines coursework, on-the-job training, and testing to ensure an examiner has the skills and technical knowledge necessary to evaluate the condition and practices of the entities that FHFA supervises.
To date, more than 50 of FHFA's safety and soundness examiners have been awarded the distinction of Certified Housing Finance Examiner in recognition of their accomplishments since the program started in 2013.
