Course #2: 2010 ADA Standards: Building Blocks and Special Elements
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 four hour video course covers the third, fourth, fifth and eighth chapters of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design. The material for this course is presented by simple narration and power point video presentation, including on-site, real worldvideo examples in various accessible buildings used by both the public and private sector.
After completing this course participants will be able to:
- Be able recognize what exterior components can, and should comply with ADA standards.
- Identify the ADA requirements for proper maneuvering space, clearance and accessible routes.
- Outline at least one design strategy based on ADA 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 the ADA Standards.
