Can I apply presentations to ADA Coordinator credits?

All registered and paid conference attendees will receive a certificate of attendance immediately following the conference. Most conference sessions will be eligible for ADA Coordinator Training Certification Program (ACTCP) Foundation or Elective Credits. After the conference, please indicate the sessions you attended on your agenda, then submit that agenda and your certificate of attendance online to the ACTCP. The ACTCP administrators will apply your credits as appropriate.

Most of the sessions we will offer at our 2024 Americans with Disabilities Act Virtual Conference should count toward ACTCP foundation level or elective credits. The decision about which courses count and how many credits will apply is ultimately up to the ACTCP staff.
