After you have taken the CAPS designation courses and the universal design/build class, you may want or need additional coursework, seminars, continuing education hours (“CEUs”), or in-service training.
Through original-content one-hour, half-day, and full-day classes, Steve Hoffacker, CAPS, focuses on skills, techniques, and strategies that you can use to start, build, and run your remodeling, home renovation, home assessment, personal services business, or related venture to appeal to your aging in place clients and develop a strategic referral network.
AOTA Continuing Education Classes
Currently, “Beyond Your CAPS: What’s Next?” is approved for 5 hours of CE credit. Watch for other classes as they are announced and scheduled, with a few to be ready by the fall of 2022. While these are approved classes for occupational therapist and occupational therapy assistants, anyone with an interest in aging in place solutions are invited to take the classes. This includes physical therapists, interior designers, real estate agents, contractors, architects, and several others.
NKBA Kitchen & Bath Continuing Education Classes
Watch for these classes as they are scheduled. Steve will be covering a series of topics for approved continuing education credit at a nominal price. The classes will be approximately 90 minutes to full days in length and will carry 0.2 to 0.6 credits from NKBA.
Steve has presented online sessions for NKBA on “Visitability In The Kitchen” about maneuverability, space planning, accessibility, and usage patterns for residents and visitors alike in a home, “Taking Control Of The Bath” about safety, function, and visitability in all bathrooms, not just the master bath or hallway bath, and “Visitability Extends To Outdoor Spaces” about the importance and use of outdoor activity areas in a residential backyard and getting to and from those spaces.
