ADA Day Webinar (5 LU | HSW)
The AIA East Bay Chapter will be presenting an online version of their popular “ADA Day” seminar designed to provide the five hours of disability access training credits necessary for California Architects to renew their state licenses. The course will once again be taught by Steven R Winkel, FAIA, PE, CASp of The Preview Group, Inc. Steve has taught this course for the chapter for many years. He is a California Licensed Architect, Certified Access Specialist and Registered Civil Engineer. He served as the Architect Commissioner on the California Building Standards Commission for 19 years until his retirement at the end of 2019. His firm provides accessibility and building code consulting for architects and project owners throughout the United States.
The course will be given on Tuesday, March 28. It will start at 11:00 am and end at 5:00 pm. The day will divided into 5 one hour segments with time between each session allowing participants to disengage and move around a bit between sessions. Each session will be good for one hour of AIA CES Health Safety and Welfare credit and 1 hour of California Architect’s Board disability access training credits which will apply to the CAB requirements of 5 hours of training every two years. We encourage attendees to take the entire course in one day to satisfy their entire CAB requirement, but the course segments will also be available in 1 hour credit increments. There will be time allotted for written questions and live responses at the end of each segment.
