Why wait to obtain your CAPS certification? Get it in just three days – from the comfort and convenience of your home or office. Take them on three consecutive days or split them up to accommodate your schedule. Regardless of your level of professional or practical experience with aging in place issues, Steve notes that most people who attend the CAPS and related classes he offers have some type of personal connection with aging in place issues that involved a parent, child, sibling, or other family members so there already is a knowledge base present.

There are so many opportunities available to help people age in place effectively, including universal design and visibility approaches, and Steve will help you navigate the many possibilities open to you. This is true for a variety of professions.

Highly recommend this class for anyone looking to improve their knowledge and skillset when it comes to home modifications for our aging populations. Whether you're a contractor, interior designer, occupational or physical therapist, Steve's course has plenty of information to help you advance your skills and capabilities. Steve was concise and informative in all his lectures. What really sets him apart is his willingness to help you both in his courses and even after you are finished.

Steve does a great job incorporating the OT perspective into his CAPS courses and other classes. The material is relevant and applicable for occupational therapists. Great continuing education course and AOTA approved!

I have attended Steve's CAPS and Transition Feature course and have found both of them to be engaging, information, and interactive. Steve is both knowledgable and personal when teaching and is very open to questions and comments. The Transition Feature class offered ideas and details regarding how small changes in each room can assist in the overall accessibility and aging and place features of the home. I really appreciated that he emphasized details in the home that clients often times overlook. I look forward to attending more of his classes and webinars.

I learned so much in Steve's CAPS class! It was interesting, easy to follow, and very professional. It opened my eyes to a lot of things I did not know about. Steve provided a friendly atmosphere, which made it a pleasure to spend three days learning with my other colleagues.
