Online Courses about Home Modifications

These courses were made possible through a grant to I.D.E.A.S., Inc. through the National Institutes of Health. Each course follows a similar format, with information about the various conditions that cause limitations or difficulties in performing everyday activities, and information about a range of environmental modifications that can be implemented to compensate for deficits.

The courses are valuable to individuals who provide any type of home evaluation, design, or construction service for seniors or people with disabilities, such as occupational therapists, physical therapists, nurses, home health care workers, case managers/social workers, builders/remodelers, architects and interior designers.

After purchasing the self-study course, you will receive an email containing a password that allows you to access the course anytime during a 90-day period. Complete all four courses and earn a Home Modifications Practitioners Program Certificate. Certificates for all courses will be mailed within 30 days of course completion. Students must achieve a score of 80% accuracy on the post test in order to earn CEUs. Students may take the post test as many times as they like.
