The 275 page course manual includes the presentation in a format for note taking and a robust reference section for Reasonable Accommodation Program Managers. You are encouraged to print one copy of the presentation section for each student. In order to conserve resources, we encourage you to limit printing of the reference section to those who will actually refer to the materials contained therein.

The reference section of the manual contains current and precedent setting examples of federal court and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) settlements linked to the topics covered in the training.
