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.

Great class taught by Steve Hoffacker! A lot of good information that considers all of the transitional points of movement about individual homes. People access at various points, and this class offers new ways of thinking about those spaces where a different action is required to transition from one space to the next within a home, in particular. We're used to seeing the home as a whole, but it is actually a series of spaces with different functions. The transition from one to the next can present challenges that this class helps the student to see in a new light.

I just completed the Beyond Your Caps class and I feel as empowered and as energized as I was when I got my certification. Steve is an instructor who is committed o the success of his students and to the health, safety and comfort of everyone! It would be worth twice the price,

Steve's classes are fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed taking CAPS I, II, III with him. I also found the follow up class Beyond CAPS is critical for implementing this new knowledge.

The class was very informative. Steve was a great teacher, he presented material from several perspectives -- from a therapist, a contractor, handyman, designer, etc. He made sure he made the information relevant to the various occupations that were in the class.
