The Southwest ADA Center provides training to entities with compliance obligations under the law, as well as to those people with disabilities and advocates who want to learn more about their rights.

About Training on Demand

The Southwest ADA Center has provided hundreds of trainings to employers of all sizes, to school districts, colleges, human resource associations, and centers for independent living. The Southwest ADA Center offers training on demand for businesses, educational entities, attorneys, architects and other groups.

Trainings on all aspects of the ADA are available. Project and affiliate staff can provide everything from basic general training to complex in-depth training for a particular industry. We make it our job to stay up-to-date on case law, as well as new regulatory guidance from the Department of Justice, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and other agencies that affect employers and businesses regarding the ADA.

Meeting your Training Needs

The Southwest ADA Center and its affiliates provide needs-based customized training. Programs are designed to meet the specific needs of each organization and audience.

The Southwest ADA Center responds to requests by customizing existing training programs or creating new and unique programs.

Identifying Training Needs

The Southwest ADA Center, through informal or formal processes, will help identify the needs within your organization. This initial assessment ensures that the training will achieve your goals.

Customizing your Training

Techniques used to customize existing workshops include:

  • Tailoring the length or delivery methodology.
  • Inserting specific workplace examples into an employment training program.
  • Developing workshop exercises that reflect industry or organizational scenarios.

Ensuring The Impact of Training

The value of training begins when the session is over. The Southwest ADA Center can provide follow-up and refresher trainings on-site or through a variety of distance learning techniques. In addition, we offers a number of other services, such as a newsletter, and monthly e-bulletins that can help keep participants updated on the latest trends related to the Americans with Disabilities Act.
