Course background

The maturing of the U.S. Baby Boomer population is a huge opportunity for remodelers. As this consumer group expands, more and more are interested in remodeling their home to git their new lifestyle and abilities. This Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) course will help you understand the guidelines and requirements of accessibility, the importance of doing an assessment with input from occupational and physical therapists as well as qualified health care professionals, and the significance of good design in making modifications that can transform a house into a safe, attractive, and comfortable home for life. As a graduate of this course, you'll be able to:

  • Describe the home ownership market as it relates to the three segments of the Aging in Place market
  • Consider contractual and legal concerns for building professionals providing design solutions to the Aging in Place client
  • Perform a needs assessment to identify and prioritize the needs, wants and wishes of the Aging in Place client
  • Recommend specific design solutions for the Aging in Place client
  • Estimate and schedule the Aging in Place project while regarding special considerations

About the Presenter

Curt Kiriu has been in the construction industry for 27+ years and has been a licensed general contractor for the past 7 years. 
He proudly earned his NAHB Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist designation in 2008, from the BIA of Washington in Vancouver, Washington. As a licensed CAPS General Contractor, he has been designing and building various barrier free accessible residential projects (bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchens etc…) since 2009. He is very passionate about CAPS and speaks to everyone he meets about CAPS, and what the designation represents; because the majority of the population has no idea what CAPS is so unless we inform them they will probably never know. His daily goal is to share the continuous amount of information there is in the Aging-In-Place and Universal Design industry. His long term goal is for CAPS to be common knowledge, not only to those in the construction industry but to other professional, state and city government; but most importantly the general public.
