ADA Requirements for the Design of Parking Spaces
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides detailed information on designing accessible parking spaces that meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act as defined by the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.


Both vans and cars are considered.  Dimensions, distribution, location, connections to access routes (to accessible entrances to buildings), and minimum number of spaces are all described.  Special requirements for making temporary events (such as street festivals, craft fairs, musical performances, sporting events and home shows) accessible are also presented.


This 1 PDH online course is intended primarily for civil engineers involved in the design of parking spaces that meet ADA standards.
