Essential ADA Compliance 201

How to do a basic compliance check. Includes common components, horizontal paths, vertical paths, parking, doors, restrooms and counters and dining areas."

This is a more advanced course on how to spot common ADA issues for most commercial buildings. This course follows Total ADA Compliance 101. Total ADA Compliance 101 gives you the frame for liability. This course will give you the information to do basic assessments. Although there are measurements and technical details this course is not designed to make you an ADA expert.
The goal of this course is to give you a conceptual frame to understand how to self assess your site. For many issues you will still need to hire a design consultant. In lawsuit situations you will still need to hire an attorney. For a complete assessment of your site you will still need to hire an ADA expert who can physically inspect your site.
This course covers common ADA paths of travels, horizontal and vertical paths of travel, parking, doors, restrooms, dining areas and counter areas where customers interface with their clients.

With this course you will also get handouts that you can use to make basic assessments about accessible parking, accessible dining and so on.

After watching these videos, you will be able to

  • Walk through your property and spot common lawsuit issues
  • Figure out common (and not so common) sense fixes for compliance
  • Advise your (prospective) tenants on their (and your) liability
  • Protect your business and your clients

These videos will cover

  • Restaurants (no stage)
  • Office buildings (no conference room)

Stay tuned for more advanced courses (which will include Auditoriums, stadiums, hotels/motels, spas, gyms, gas stations and institutional settings like classrooms, jails and medical office buildings)
