NEW! As of June 1, 2016 - if you take the ADA Basics webcourse and need written proof for professional CEU credit, you must fill out & submit both a CEU form and a Transcript Request Form. Both forms must be submitted to obtain proof that you completed the course and receive a course transcript from Syracuse University (SU).

Note on ADA Consultant Certification

Completion of the ADA Basic Building Blocks webcourse does not certify you as an ADA Consultant. "ADA Consultant Certification" does not exist nor is recognized by any Federal enforcement agency. The Department of Justice (DOJ) states the following in a technical assistance letter dated October 15, 1993:

"The Department of Justice does not certify or endorse any individual or organization as ADA consultants, and does not approve or endorse any products or designs as being in compliance with the ADA. Any individual or business claiming to have such a certification or endorsement may be violating various state and federal laws prohibiting fraud and misrepresentation."
