This seminar provides in-depth coverage of the revised ADA-ABA guidelines in comparison with the currently enforceable ADAAG standards. Also covered are the implications of the revised state standards. We will help you understand what standards to use, and when. An overview of the New 2010 ADA Accessibility Guidelines that went into effect on March 15th, 2012. These are now the enforceable standards for all buildings and will affect just about every project built. This study will help you learn how to integrate the new standards into your design and what to do when your state requirements differ from the new federal requirements. Are you ready for the most major change in access standards in 20 years? You will be after this class!

Information:

The Americans with Disabilities Act celebrated it’s 26th anniversary in July 2016.  Never, in the history of the Act, has litigation been higher and they just raised the cost of non-compliance again.  More importantly, the Federal Agencies have recommitted to the enforcement of the ADA and are doing so by withholding Federal Funding.

Unfortunately, compliance has never been more confusing, especially for Title II entities.  Change often causes confusion and the standards and their application have changed, as of March 15, 2012.

Are you ready? Do you have an up-to-date transition plan if the Department of Justice were to ask for it? Did you know you needed one? Do you know what needs to be in it or how to put it all together? Do you realize not having one can jeopardize any federal funding you receive and put you at risk of litigation? Not just from the DOJ but also from private citizens.

Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act is mandatory. That fact seems to becoming clearer and clearer as cities around the country, have been hit with both private law suits from local citizens and large settlement agreements from the United States Department of Justice.

Many more wonder when it will be them and what they need to do to avoid it.

These are just a few of the questions we hear every day. Questions that deserve answers… So, we’ve developed a training class specifically for Title II Entities. Detailed information will be provided about all aspects of compliance.
