About

The City of Fort Collins Healthy Homes program invites you to participate in the annual Master Home Educator training this upcoming April. The Healthy Homes Program offers free indoor air quality assessments to City of Fort Collins residents.

Master Home Educators are a fundamental and vital element in responding to the family health needs of our community.

Prospective Master Home Educators complete 20 hours of comprehensive training April 3 - 15, 2017 on the home as a system and learn how to identify common problems, the health implications, and how to fix them.

The training focuses on biological pollutants, chemical contaminants, and safety issues. After completing the training, the program requires that you dedicate an additional 20 hours and/or complete at least 10 home health assessments in the coming year. The class is limited to 25 participants.

Healthy Homes looks for diverse, especially bilingual, individuals who are committed to actively participating in the training sessions and joining the City to improve the health of our Fort Collins residents. A list of training dates and more information can be found at:

"The Master Home Educator Training offered a wealth of information and data that effectively prepared me and a full team of new Master Home Educators to conduct in-home health assessments for homeowners and renters."
