The Home Builders Association of the Grand Traverse Area's mission includes the support of educational initiatives within our community. With education as one of the foundations of our association, we offer a variety of opportunities and venues for professional development and education that include the following and more.
All classes currently on the HBAGTA education calendar are LIVE virtual online classes. When Covid-19 restrictions allow, we will be scheduling CPR & First Aid courses and other in-person classes.
The Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation program teaches the technical, business management, and customer service skills essential to competing in the fastest growing segment of the residential remodeling industry: home modifications for the aging-in-place.
All 3 CAPS classes are required to earn the NAHB CAPS designation.
