Revised Requirements Make CAASH Easier to Complete
Active adult housing professionals who are working towards the Certified Active Adult Specialist in Housing (CAASH) designation now have one less qualification to meet. Candidates no longer need to provide evidence of 50 elective credits.
To earn the CAASH designation under the revised requirements, candidates must successfully complete the three required courses — “Designing for the Active Adult,” “Selling to Active Adults” and “Trends and Research Methods to Define the Active Adult Lifestyle” — have a minimum of three years experience in the 50+ housing field and adhere to the CAASH Code of Ethics.
The continuing education requirements remain in place.
The CAASH designation gives housing professionals serving this rapidly burgeoning market the essential knowledge, tools and skills that will help them succeed — from conducting initial research to design considerations and features to closing the sale and servicing the customer.
CAASH designees also are included in the online NAHB Professional Designations Directory.
Individuals who have completed the three required courses may now complete the graduation process by sending in a CAASH graduation application. NAHB members who send in their graduation applications by June 30, 2010 will have a reduced graduation fee of $95.
