Universal Design Remodeling Course

The National Association of the Remodeling Industry offers its Universal Design Remodeling Class starting in January. The class will cover the seven principals of universal design: equitable use, flexibility in use, perceptible information, tolerance for error, low physical effort, and size and space for approach and use.

According to NARI, attendees "will understand the differences between model building codes and ones described within the Americans with Disabilities Act. "

The course meets online every Tuesday from 2 to 4 p.m. CST for four weeks. Classes start Jan. 3, 2012; March 6, 2012; or May 8, 2012. The cost is $295 for NARI members and $395 for nonmembers. NARI cites this as a NARI Education Course, not a NARI Certification Program.
