CHBA Adaptiv Home Renovation Course 

Registration for a national session of the CHBA Adaptiv Home Renovation Course is now open, with special pricing for CHBA members. This course is aimed at renovators, designers, and other professionals who want to learn more about the aging in place market and the growing business opportunities across the country. The emphasis of this course is on improving design with safety, security, ease of use, comfort, accessibility, and occupant health, and will include a building knowledge component.  

The Adaptiv Home Renovation Course is the first step in becoming part of a network of professionals who offer services to homeowners who want to live in their home safely and comfortably for as long as possible regardless of age, ability, size, or circumstance. When done correctly with the homeowners in mind, home modifications can significantly improve quality of life.
