1 hr. Online Course

Level: Fundamental

Item#: RV-11149AW

SME: Alfredo Cely, P.E., MSEM

Average Rating

4 40
The United States Access Board is the entity responsible for maintaining the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines. While the ADA guidelines address certain features common to public sidewalks, such as curb ramps, further guidance is necessary to address conditions and constraints unique to public rights-of-way. The Access Board has been developing Public Right of Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG) for the past few years. Once PROWAGs are adopted by the Department of Justice, they will become enforceable under Title II of the ADA. This course will provide a summary of the most recent PROWAGs that have been published by the Access Board and how they relate to the design of pedestrian facilities within public right of ways.
Course Objectives
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Describe two key background concepts for the development of the ADA and PROWAG 
  • List the three major issues of implementing ADA requirements within public rights of way
  • Summarize the four main chapters within the current PROWAG
  • Apply PROWAG into the design of at least three common pedestrian facilities within public transportation projects

graphics were poor; no written transcript provided when we could not understand the speaker who at this time had poor enunciation and sentence structure
By (Architect) on Sep, 02, 2019
graphics were poor; no written transcript provided when we could not understand the speaker who at this time had poor enunciation and sentence structure. Hard to understand and at best more graphics are needed; and a written transcript to accompany the reader in case we cannot understand what was said.

this course was mostly the narrator reading from a script
By (Engineer) on Aug, 19, 2019
this course was mostly the narrator reading from a script. This causes the audience to lose interest. more graphics and succinct explanations are far more engaging. as a result, more info is retained.
