Under the current administration, the development and adoption of new federal accessibility guidelines, regulations, and standards have come to a near standstill. States have continued to adopt additions and changes to their requirements, and the A117.1 Committee has issued its latest version. Based on expansive research from the IDEA Center in Buffalo and other sources, the new A117.1 Standard contains the most far-reaching changes in that document in decades. This highly interactive advanced workshop will focus on interpreting and applying the ADA Standards and regulations in unusual circumstances as well as the significant changes in A117.1-2017 and how they apply to various project types. It will also include sessions on some of the most often misunderstood concepts in physical accessibility requirements.

The one-day intermediate-to-advanced workshop, 'Fair Housing,' offered the same week, complements this program. Enjoy a 10% discount off tuition when you register for both.
