Course Description:

Day 1:  Space Planning & Design  9:00am–4:45pm (6 contact hours)

This intermediate level course starts with a review of the housing laws and the different types of design, generated from their inception as it relates to environmental modifications. Attendees will participate in interactive activities to use knowledge of design principles to environmental modification recommendations.  The course is filled with visual imagery to provide examples of the design of each of the major home areas (e.g.: Entry, second floor access, Kitchen, Bathroom) as it conforms to a varied spectrum of users.  Space relationships and drawing the built environment for the purpose of either reading drawings and/or creating concept drawings to accompany a home/environmental modification assessment will be reviewed.  This course will also incorporate content and examples specific to design for aging, design for the senses and gerontechnology to provide attendees a holistic approach to creating an environmental modifications plan.  Case studies will be provided for attendees to apply what they have learned throughout the day and create/modify a concept drawing to accompany an environmental modifications plan.

Day 2:  Building a Business   9:00am–4:45pm (6 contact hours)

Interested in starting your own home modifications business? As a private practitioner, you must carefully plan your business development and strategies for marketing.  Prioritizing your goals and objectives, time management and finances are imperative to the success of running the business. Marketing and networking, as well as, explaining the distinct value of your services as a home modifications consultant, are essential to building relationships and obtaining referrals/clients.  This course will incorporate content regarding building a home modifications business including home modification business models, process for home modification service provision, creating clearly defined business contracts, accessing funding, as well as marketing and advertising.  The roles of the home/environmental modifications team members will also be discussed, for successful inter-professional collaboration as a means to advocate and market services.
