Accessible Pedestrian Pathways Mini-Course
Dates: August 6- September 14

Registration for this course is now closed. 


Would you like to learn more about pedestrian accessibility and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements related to accessible pathways? Are you interested in hearing about recent technology applications to assist pedestrians? Have you been thinking of conducting a planning assessment, starting a pedestrian advisory group, or updating a pedestrian-related policy in your community and need the impetus to get started?

Register for NADTC’s Accessible Pathways Mini-Course which gets underway the second week of August and runs through September 14. The course is online and self-paced and will consist of a basic walking/wayfinding assessment (we provide the checklist!), short readings, listening to three 15 to 20-minute webinars (one live; the others pre-recorded), short webinar quizzes, and one final project assignment. If you miss the live webinar, you can listen to it anytime during the course period.

As your final project, you’ll be able to select one of four options that best suits your local needs.
