ADA Day: Accessibility for California Licensure
This 5-hour presentation will complete all California required ADA/Accessibility hours for architects' 2013 licensure renewal.

This course will cover the application of common ADA requirements for existing Title III "Public Accommodation" facilities.  The instructor will cover the most commonly litigated access issues in California.  The course is designed for Architects, Engineers, building professionals, CASp's and Code officials who are conducting accessibility site evaluations, preparing designs, performing plan reviews and construction field verification at existing buildings.

The goal of this program is to highlight and feature those areas common to most buildings, facilities and sites.  In addition, the training will also touch on common errors, omissions and assumptions that lead to confusion, redesign, project delays, change orders and cost overruns. We will discuss how to avoid errors and omissions, substandard construction and the exposure to complaints and legal action that can arise from non-compliance and deficiencies in accessibility.

The presenter will emphasize the specific technical provisions of the new 2010 ADA Standards and point out areas where it differs from the old guidelines. We will also be introduced to the anticipated changes in the 2013 California Building Code.

This course will focus on California accessibility and Federal ADA requirements pertaining to existing buildings. The material is presented in three parts, combining an overview of up-to-date regulatory requirements with hands-on activities.
