2013 Accessibility Standards & CASp Training
by Jean Nilsson, Ed.
For the first time ever, the California Access Code will be in alignment with the federal access standards for barrier-free design.
Gilda Puente-Peters Architects, hosted by City of Fremont, is presenting a full four-day State and Federal Disabled Access training February 10-13, 2014, as preparation for the upcoming CASp Exam scheduled for March, 12, 2014.
Recent adoption of the 2013 California Building Standards Code (Code) by the California Building Standards Commission included significant changes to the State's accessibility standards. Gilda's CASp Training Program includes a detailed training on the 2010 ADA Standards and the 2013 CCR -- Title 24, Chapters 11A and 11B.
Many of us have attended Gilda's trainings, and they are excellent. For more information, go to www.gppaarchitects.com
