grab barWith an increased emphasis on concepts, products and solutions, two of the three courses leading to the Certified Aging-in-Place (CAPS) designation have a new look – and now they are ready for primetime.

All three courses will be held at the Olympia Master Builders, Olympia, Wash., March 29-31, from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. PT.

On March 29, Marketing and Communication Strategies for the Aging-in-Place Professional (CAPS I) will help participants identify this burgeoning opportunity and then develop the skills to interact with the market and grow their business.

On March 30, Design/Build Concepts for Aging-in-Place (CAPS II) enables participants to identify common challenges within the home and understand attractive design concepts that create a safe and comfortable environment for clients who want to age in place or have a medical condition or trauma that requires home modifications or specialized equipment.

Additionally, instructors will offer real-life examples drawn from winners of the Homes for Life contest, honoring CAPS designees who have demonstrated excellence in aging-in-place design and home modifications.

For those seeking to take the full CAPS three-course series, Business Management for Building Professionals will be offered Friday, March 31. Learn critical elements and practical tips for successfully managing your business – and finish the requirements for your CAPS designation.

You’ll also receive discount pricing when you take the full, three-course series:

  • NAHB/BIA of Washington Members: Single courses: $250 each; course series, $200 each
  • Non-Members: Single courses: $300 each; course series, $250 each
