Well, yes, if it’s in the path of travel and located between 27″ and 80″ above the floor.  And this is one of the many issues discussed in AIACC’s 2015 Online Accessibility Series, now available exclusively at  The series also reveals why smaller flushless urinals are considered target practice by people with vision impairments.  And how a ramp, designed as a focal point in a public building, enabled a large gathering of people with a broad range of ability levels to evacuate before the fire department arrived.

Target practice, as describedby Chris Downey, AIA, in Architecture Beyond Sight These are not your “add 4 inches here and insert a 5-foot radius there” courses.  These courses will inspire you as you view accessibility in a larger design context. — Steve Castellanos, FAIA, Executive Director for the California Commission on Disability Access

These courses show how Universal Design creates accessible spaces that are inviting and engaging, and that celebrate the rich diversity of the human condition. — Bill Leddy, FAIA, Leddy Maytum Stacy

So, as the days get cooler and the nights longer, and as you prepare to spend time with those you cherish (or need a break from those you don’t), cozy up next to your computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone, and satisfy your California licensure-mandated courses at our LOWEST PRICES EVER.

And remember, as you meet those pesky HSW and California mandatory education courses, keep YOUR turkey out of the path of travel!
