Schedule of CAPS Classes

Schedule of Steve Hoffacker's Certified Aging In Place Specialist (CAPS) Classes

To get started on your "Certified Aging In Place Specialist (CAPS)" designation, or to complete it if you already have begun the program but need a class or two to complete it, find a convenient location and series of dates from the schedule below. There are new classes added throughout the year, so if you don't see one at the time of year you'd like to take it , or you want one a little closer to you, contact Steve to see if anything might be in the works to help you. You can also discuss the possibility of having a course scheduled for your area by contacting Steve and discussing this directly with him.

Each course that you register for is $300 for non-members of NAHB and $275 for NAHB members. All three classes are required for your CAPS designation although CAPS I or II that have been taken at an earlier time do not need to be repeated. There are no exceptions or exemptions, which is good because everyone will be working with the same information..

After completion of the coursework, it takes up to 6 weeks to get the official notification from NAHB and then you can apply for your official designation. This application ("graduation") process is a one-time $75 (paper certificate) or $110 (laminated plaque and lapel pin) for NAHB members and $145 or $218 for non-members. There is an annual renewal fee of $55 for members and $83 for non-members as well as a CEU requirement of 12-hours every three years. Steve explains this in more detail in the classes.

All classes begin at 9:00 am local time, wherever they are held. 
Use your credit card to register for one, two, or all of the "CAPS" Classes
