HMIS Training Process

The OC HMIS can only be accessed with a valid username and password combination. 211OC will provide a unique username and initial password for eligible individuals after completion of the required trainings below. On the user's first log-in to the Clarity software, he or she will be required the sign the HMIS User Agreement, which includes an agreement to abide by the HMIS Policies and Procedures.

  • HMIS Part 1 User Training: Learn about the history of HMIS, privacy and security, basic HUD definitions, and HMIS best practices.
  • 2017 Data Standards Training: Informs users of the changes to the Data Standards implemented by HUD on October 1, 2017.  Users at agencies that receive PATH, SSVF, RHY, HOPWA, or VASH funding will also be required to complete the Supplemental Data Standards Training for those funding sources.
