CAPS Training Program

What is a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS)?

The Certified Aging-in-Place (CAPS) designation program teaches the technical, business management, and customer service skills essential to competing in the fastest growing segment of the residential remodeling industry: home modifications for the aging-in-place. The NAHB Remodelers Council, in collaboration with the AARP, NAHB Research Center, and NAHB Seniors Housing Council, developed this program to provide comprehensive, practical, market-specific information about working with older and maturing adults to remodel their homes for aging-in-place.

 

The three-part program includes:

Marketing & Communications Strategies for Aging & Accessibility (CAPS I)
