Receiving My CAPS Designation (Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist)

See also

I’m very excited to announce that I received my Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation earlier this month!

Yes, I have joined the ranks of others in the remodeling industry who have completed the CAPS certification process, which teaches a business and technical management course, along with customer service and marketing skills for aging-in-place home modifications.

CAPS graduates help homeowners remain in their homes as they grow older. Graduates can include remodelers, designers, architects, builders, and occupational therapists.

Best Bath, located in beautiful Treasure Valley of Idaho, organized the training. CAPS I and II sessions were taught by Environmental Gerontologist, Esther Greenhouse, who also explained in depth about Universal Design and Visibility.

For an overview of CAPS, or to obtain information about getting your CAPS designation, visit the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) website or call 800-368-5242 x8216.
