AIACC Accessibility Course #aecK-A104: Accessible Public Accommodations
Presented by: Kerwin Lee, Senior Consulting Architect, Rolf Jensen & Associates, Inc.
AIA/CES (HSW) Learning Units: 1.5 Hours
This 90-minute continuing education course complies with California licensure requirements regarding accessibility (SB 1608 requirement)
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Federal Civil Right Act, but has far reaching elements that affect the built environment. Part of the ADA looks like a building code, but the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG), enforced only by the Department of Justice, goes beyond building regulations. Although building owners have an obligation to comply with the ADA, it is the design community that has responsibility to comply with the ADA Accessibility Guidelines. In addition, the State of California requires the application of both documents, the California Building Code (CBC) and the ADAAG. This continuing education course provides an understanding of the complexities in trying to comply with all applicable regulations, with a focus on Title III/Public Accommodations as addressed by both the ADA and Chapter 11B of the CBC.
This course was filmed in 2010 and reflects codes and standards in affect at the time of filming. As codes, standards and interpretations are subject to changes, viewers should check current codes and standards with regards to accessibility, specifically the California Building Code (CBC), the International Building Code (IBC along with the ICC A117.1) and the 2010 Americans with Disabilities Standards (2010 ADA).
This course is presented in high definition video and requires a fast internet connection.
