I think this course was better than the (earlier version?) covering the ADA guidelines
By on Jan, 07, 2019
I think this course was better than the (earlier version?) covering the ADA guidelines. This does seem similar to the other one, though, so it'd be nice to clarify if this is a replacement -- as indicated by the identical quiz -- or complementary. It's also a bit outdated, with the focus on "construction that began on or before March 15, 2012" or has a building permit approved before that date may choose between the 1991 and the 2010 standards. It's 2019 now. There are virtually no projects remaining that may choose between standards; it would be nice if the course reflected this by emphasizing the use of the 2010 standards and when/where buildings are required to be updated for compliance.
Lots of good information
By (Engineer) on Feb, 12, 2019
Lots of good information. It got a little annoying when the author/presenter kept repeating xxCFR part 123.45 etc. I did learn quite a bit especially about applicability of the 2010 Standards. Thank you.
well done

presenter was articulate and clear. one of the "tests" did not work
There was a mis-speak I believe
By (Engineer) on Sep, 23, 2019
There was a mis-speak I believe. The four Title III priorities are mandatory, whereas the speaker stated it was not mandatory. I will see shortly if I am correct when my exam is graded.
Good information showing the main changes to the ADA Guidelines with the 2010 new guidelines

Lots of connectivity problems requiring much more than one hour to complete this course. Some unnecessarily tricky wording of exam questions.
