At Architect’s Training Institute, we believe that beautifully designed buildings should be designed with everyone in mind. With this year marking the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, (ADA) we’d like to highlight one of the many ADA-related continuing education courses we offer.
As you’ll quickly notice, the 2010 ADA Standards: Real World Application Course is unique because you’re taken “outside the classroom.” Throughout the six hour video course, you’ll join instructor Rodger Peck as he covers scoping requirements with on-site, real world accessibility examples in various public and private buildings.
Some of the on-site explanations include:
- Accessible Routes in an office building, sports arena, and swimming pool
- Handicap Accessible Parking Spaces outside of a large business complex
- Keeping a level surface area in a firing range
- And many more!
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Recognize how the overall philosophy of the Americans with Disabilities Act can, and does create an environment of opportunity and non-discrimination.
- Be able recognize what facilities can, and should comply with ADA standards.
- Outline at least one design strategy based on ADA standards for the construction of either a public or private building.
- Summarize the options available to the design or building professional when designing a facility per the requirements of the ADA Standards.
