Average Rating

4 12

People with disabilities continue to face architectural barriers that limit or make it impossible to access goods or services. The ADA's regulations and the ADA Standards for Accessible Design, originally published in 1991, set the standard for what makes a facility accessible. While the updated 2010 Standards retain many of the original provisions in the 1991 Standards, they do contain some significant differences.  This course specifically explores ADA Readily Achievable Barrier Removal based on the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.  This course provides practical information on how to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, to clarify potential misunderstandings about the requirements of the ADA, and to highlight its flexible, common sense approach to accessibility.

Course Objectives
  • List different types of physical and mental disabilities as covered by ADA
  • Recognize the revised regulations for Title II and Title III, the organization of the new design standards, and the standard’s intent to improve access and compliance
  • Identify changes to the ADA Readily Achievable Barrier Removal based on the 2010 ADA Standards
  • Recognize the timeline for compliance with the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design
  • Explain the importance of compliance with the ADA

This was a good intro to the ADA, as well as it's priorities and the application of compliance. The test questions were a bit twisty, and thus confusing, but the course material was good.
