CAPS Classes
October 23-25, 2019

Most people want to stay in their own home despite aging or becoming disabled. Remodelers and therapists certified in CAPS are trained to work with the homeowner to make it a safe and comfortable place for them to live for many more years. The three classes required to earn the CAPS designation detail the technical, business management and customer service skills essential to success for remodelers and therapists interested in incorporating modifications designed to enable homeowners to stay in their homes safely for a longer period of time. Endorsed by AARP, the CAPS designation has gained increased recognition in the marketplace and has become more popular among occupational therapists, Veterans Administration caseworkers and others who do business primarily with the aging population.
