FREE Disability Rights Web Course

We are pleased to announce a free, self-paced web course available 24/7 that provides an overview of disability rights laws.  The course takes approximately two hours to complete and includes real-life scenarios, quizzes and a final exam.  You can register at any time for this free web course at www.DisabilityRightsCourse.org.

Upon completion of this course, you will (1) Have a general understanding of the major federal disability rights laws (the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Housing Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Air Carrier Access Act), (2) be able to assess what laws apply in different discrimination scenarios and (3) have resources for help and information about disability rights laws.  The Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC) has certified the course for two continuing credit hours.

This course is recommended for:

  • People with disabilities
  • Advocates for people with disabilities
  • Lawyers and law students
  • Rehabilitation counselors
  • Social service providers
  • Anyone with an interest in disability rights laws
