5 HSW Credit Video Course
This course covers Chapter Two of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, Chapter 2 and sets the stage for all the following chapters of the ADA Standards



Course Instructor:  Rodger Peck

The ADA is one of America's most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life — to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services. The 2010 Standards set minimum requirements – both scoping and technical – for newly designed and constructed, or altered State and local government facilities, public accommodations, and commercial facilities to be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.

This five hour video course covers the second chapter of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.  Chapter 2:  Scoping Requirements sets the stage for all the following chapters of the ADA Standards.  In this video course, material is presented by simple narration and power point video presentation, as well as on-site, real world video examples in various accessible buildings, used by both the public and by private businesses.
