Free Fair Housing Accessibility FIRST Design & Construction Webinars

Fair Housing Accessibility FIRST will offer free webinars for architects, engineers and building professionals. Although the in-person training calendar is set in stone for the year (here), these webinars are for those who can’t make it to any of the in-person training.

The webinars will be 90 minutes in length, with 5 minutes for opening remarks and Q&A if time permits, all done via GoToWebinar. Featured modules can be found here. Since FHA FIRST is registered with the American Institute of Architects, architects will receive up to 1½ continuing education HSW credits per webinar.

Each link is for the different webinar’s registration page and we’ll send out a link to view the presentation via GoToWebinar 24 hours and 1 hour before we’re due to begin.

ADA Now: Small Business and the ADA

Visitors to this site may be familiar with Ramp Up Idaho, a collaborative project to raise awareness of barriers to commerce posed by lack of access for persons experiencing disability. ADA Now: Small Business and the ADA is a publication of the ADA Coordinator Training Certification Program, and—as you might guess—presents great information and resources for small business owners.

As in the Ramp Up Idaho materials, this new brochure reminds us all that Access Means Business! The new brochure “may be used as a tool-kit to share with local businesses or as a foundation for trainings in your communities. Each article is also designed to be used as a stand-alone document. ACTCP encourages readers to use and share this issue, broadly.”

 

And please note the upcoming National ADA Symposium
