ADAwebstudy is designed for California architects that need to renew their licenses to meet the mandatory continuing education on disabled access requirements by California Architects Board (CAB). Our coursework highlight some of the most essential accessibility knowledge that an architect needs to know, without being overly legalistic.

The self-study coursework is easy to follow and you may take it at your own convenience over a period of 90 days. At the end of the coursework, there is no quiz and the Certificate of Completion plus the Coursework Provider Documentation would appear for your printout. Print them for your record and submit to CAB when requested.

Since our inception, AIA/CES and CAB have readily accepted our coursework over the years. Preview our sample page and you would see why architects throughout the country and expatriats all over the world have been coming to us.

"I really enjoyed how the lessons were presented and it made the renewal process a lot less tedious."
Loann Vu Clark, Loann Vu Architects, Inc., Los Angeles

"I really appreciated the updates with the accompanying explanations on how those changes differ from the current standards. I found the arrangement very logical and the text very readily digestable."
V.C., Architect, San Francisco

"We work with this every day here in Texas. We have to register every project with the State and have the drawings reviewed and the project inspected on completion. I did pick up on a few things I wasn't aware of, in the blue 2010 changes. Thank you!"
