The Rocky Mountain ADA Center is committed to educating everyone on both the spirit of the American’s with Disabilities Act and the technical application of the law. Our team of dedicated staff members design training to inform and educate participants on the impact the ADA has on all Americans.
Understanding how disability rights effect not only those living with a disability but everyone is the driving force behind all that we do.
The Rocky Mountain ADA Center provides a wide range of training options. From printed materials focused toward individuals to seminars for large and small groups we are ready to help you or your organization better under the ADA. We can be the ADA training source for individuals with disabilities, businesses, state and local agencies, transit agencies, architects and designers, disability organizations, or anyone who want to know how the ADA affects them.
