This seminar satisfies the California Architects Board’s mandatory continuing education on Disabled Access Requirements for license renewal.

Senate Bill 1608 heightens the standard and responsibility for disabled access compliance in California. The bill also requires disabled access education as part of architectural licensing. This three-hour seminar discusses the fundamentals of accessible design pertaining to areas of evacuation assistance, door clearances and hardware, single- and multiple-accommodation restrooms, showers, bathtubs, kitchens, and elevators. The 2007 California Building code is used as the basis of design. No refund after September 23.

About the instructor:
Nate Wittasek, MS in fire science and engineering, Worcester Polytechnic Institute; Senior Fire Safety Engineer, Ove Arup & Partners (ARUP), Los Angeles; former firefighter. Mr. Wittasek also holds a Professional Engineers license in the State of California and has acted in the capacity of fire and life safety engineer and code consultant for various projects around the world, including Disney Concert Hall, Staples Center, Griffith Observatory, San Jose Civic Center, and Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal.


Fall classes: Electives, Seminars and Tours.

UCLA Extension Arc_ID would like to present you with a few of our many class offerings for fall quarter. First of all, we announced previously that we have a new class: SB1608 Disabled Access Seminar for Architects!  Taught by Nate Wittasek, this one-day seminar fulfills the mandatory continuing education requirements for architects.

We are also offering several fun One-Day Lectures & Courses. These include Feng Shui  with Simona Mainini, The Role of the Royal Mistress in the Design of Great French Palaces with Eleanor Schapa, an Introduction to Oriental Carpets with Chris Fager, and Creating Warmth and Drama in the Home with Light taught by Kathy Pryzgoda.

Finally there are several architectural development and home design classes being offered. These are great for those with more specific design interests, and can also be used to satisfy elective credits for students in our program. These include courses such as, Residential Remodeling with Paul Bially, Furniture Design with Patrick Alt, Kitchen Design with Donald Silvers, and Photographing Architecture and Interiors (online) with Douglas Hill. (Please note that some of these courses may have prerequisites)
