“It is nice to have the HBA offering more classes again. Education was the main reason I joined the HBA back in 1994. I have attended many classes over the years and so have my employees. I suggest that you have as many classes you can the count toward the CGB, CGR and GMB designations, and also classes on quality and field management.” - John Stevens, Sopris Homes

“Just wanted to convey how pleased I was with this class.  Carol Smith is AWESOME.  I have been to many classes, seminars, etc., and to have everyone still on the edge of their seats by the afternoon is quite an accomplishment, it was great!” - Jacie Jeffrey, Thrive Builders

Metro Denver HBA University offers unique educational opportunities for professional growth. Councils are encouraged to submit a proposal for review and consideration of all ACCREDITED and DEVELOPMENTAL events to the University Committee. NETWORKING events are at Council discretion and do not need to be submitted for Committee approval. 


Accredited courses are generally presented in credit hours and can span several days' worth of classroom, on-line and follow-up course work. Accredited courses are taught by certified instructors and usually involve testing at the conclusion of the course. 


Developmental opportunities are courses that are not used to satisfy continuing education or professional designation requirements. Developmental courses are broad in spectrum and provide personal/professional growth. Developmental courses include information presented to improve skills and knowledge of a specified topic. These courses are generally presented in short blocks of time that can range from one-hour to half-day.
