What You’ll Learn
Through this course you will learn to identify and measure the essential functions and physical demands of a full range of jobs. You will be guided through the process of identifying the essential functions of a job under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act. You’ll recognize the difference between the essential functions of a job and the physical demands of those functions. (The essential functions of a job rarely include lifting, carrying, standing, etc.) These concepts serve as a platform for learning how to prepare a thorough job analysis report. If you want to perform analyses across the spectrum of cognitive, aptitude, and temperamental demands of a job, you will benefit from the university-level resources that complement this course.
