The courses will be presented in three parts that will total the required five hours of ADA training. Attendance is required for all three parts to fulfill the California Architects Board for license renewal. The series is also available for those who want to attend one or two classes. AIA members will have their attendance reported to National. A certificate of completion will be provided to all attendees.

Part I Thursday, June 4, 10 am to 12 pm

Approved 2 LU/HSW learning objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify new requirements for usability of buildings and accessible routes, such as the adult changing table requirements in restrooms, contained in the 2019 CBC Chapter 11B.
  • Participants will be able to calculate the number and location of required accessible parking spaces and entrances so that buildings can be accessed and used safely by people who use mobility devices.
  • Participants will be able to detect what a protruding object on a circulation path is, and how it creates a safety hazard for individuals who are blind or low vision.
  • Participants will be able to differentiate door maneuvering clearance and accessible route requirements from the ADA and CBC, and how those clearances create equal access for people with disabilities.


Part II Thursday, June 11, 10 am to 12 pm

Approved 2 LU/HSW learning objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify new requirements for usability of buildings and accessible routes, such as the adult changing table requirements in restrooms, contained in the 2019 CBC Chapter 11B.

  • Participants will be able to understand measurements of accessible toilet compartments and toilet rooms that allow people with mobility disabilities to transfer safely to toilets and use lavatories in buildings.
  • Participants will be able to define accessible egress requirements and how architectural design contributes to fire safety and accessible means to exit buildings.
  • Participants will be able to specify how visual and tactile signage design and placement requirements contribute to way finding for people who are blind or low vision in buildings and recreation areas.


Part III Thursday, June 18, 10 am to 11 am

Approved 1 LU/HSW learning objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify which specific types of multi-family housing, including apartments and condominiums, must comply with fair housing laws to evaluate if their future residential project designs will need to meet accessibility requirements.
  • Participants will be able to analyze the differences in design requirements for accessible parking spaces among the ADA Titles II and III, the Fair Housing Act, the Rehabilitation Act, and CBC Chapter 11A so that parking is usable by residents with disabilities.
  • Participants will be able to interpret the difference between dwelling units that must meet accessibility requirements and those that meet adaptability requirements, and how that difference impacts use of the dwelling unit by people with hearing and mobility disabilities.
  • Participants will be able to recall how accessibility requirements apply to common areas of residential properties, including leasing offices, swimming pools and common rooms so that residents with disabilities can socialize and use all features of their residential community.
