John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
Almost everyone will experience disabilities at some point during his/her life. This course is designed to provide you with a basic understanding of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA). Besides the history of ADA and the accessibility requirements for building blocks, you will learn what constitutes a disability, who is a qualified individual with a disability, and what might be reasonable accommodations for a disabled individual. You will learn about the common errors and omissions made by others when implementing the ADA requirements. In addition, you will become familiar with the seven principles of Universal Design and learn how to apply them to meet the ADA requirements for commercial facilities and public buildings.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials. All quiz questions are reviewed during the webinar. You are guaranteed to pass this quiz.
Note to Webinar Attendees:
Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live instruction to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.

NY Board does not accept courses related to office management, risk management, leadership, marketing, accounting, financial planning, real estate, and basic CAD.
