Course Description

The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) requires employers with 15 or more employees to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to others. The ADA prohibits discrimination in recruitment, hiring, training, promotions, pay, social activities, and other privileges of employment.

The ADA also restricts questions that can be asked about an employee disability and requires employers to make certain reasonable accommodations. The ADA Training & Certification Program covers these specifics in detail and provides suggestions for avoiding ADA violations. The Program also reviews how to integrate ADA compliance with other applicable laws.

Outline
The ADA Training & Certification Program

The Americans with Disabilities Act, or "ADA", prohibits discrimination in recruitment, hiring, training, promotions, pay, social activities, and other privileges of employment. The ADA also restricts questions that can be asked about a disability and requires employers to make certain "reasonable accommodations".

The ADA is applicable to employers with 15 or more employees. These employers are required to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to others. As a human resources representative and benefits professional, navigating the specifics of the ADA and the EEOC guidance documents can be daunting and time-consuming.

Our ADA Training & Certification Program covers these specifics in detail and provides numerous suggestions for providing "reasonable accommodation" and avoiding ADA violations. The Program also reviews how to integrate ADA compliance with other applicable laws such as the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

The course curriculum has numerous tips, examples, and procedural recommendations that are interspersed with interactive Q and A sessions so you are confident that you are learning and where your strengths and weaknesses lie. Our "Bookmark" feature also lets you learn at your own pace, and gives you the ability to review previously completed material.

Organizations enrolling three or more individuals also receive our Management Interface at no cost. This interface lets managers view employee progress, test scores, and any incorrectly answered test questions - great for remedial training!

Who Should Use The ADA Training & Certification Program?

The ADA Training & Certification Program is ideal for human resources professionals and HR managers who handle day-to-day ADA administration. It is also good for Third Party Administrators, HR Managers, or CFOs who seek satisfaction knowing that their administrators are properly trained and up to date on ADA issues. Individuals looking to add value to their job experience can earn the valued "Certified ADA Administrator" designation.

As opposed to ADA Plan seminars, workshops, or conferences, our ADA Training & Certification Program provides easy and continued access to content at any time of the day or night. You also get updates any time the laws change, so you know you always have the most current and up to date information. An annual renewal cost of only $99 gains you continued access to content, updates, and a new "Certified ADA Administrator" certificate each year. Ask your instructor for details.
