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 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 ADA Standards for Accessible Design and includes the California modifications found in Division 2, Chapter 11B of the California Building Code including the most recent changes. While an individual designer may be able to use the ADA for personal or generic residential design, the California code should be used by registered design professionals and enforcement officials and applied when the project is for public use within the state of California. In this video course, the 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 private businesses.
After completing this course, participants 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 Chapter 11B Accessibility of the California Building Code.
- Outline at least one design strategy based on accessibility 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 Chapter 11B.
