Overview   of [FULL] Community Access Monitor (CAM) Training (6/6/24 and 6/13/24)

This training is now full. There may still be openings in our October 2024 CAM training.

The Community Access Monitor (CAM) Program trains you to survey buildings for accessibility and use your skills to advocate for compliance with various rules and regulations. It is designed for people who want to advocate for increased access in their community and those who want to understand their obligations to provide access to the disability community, such as building inspectors, architects, business owners, builders, and Commissions on Disability.

Beginner CAM training is a two-day training lasting 5 hours each day (10 hours total), with short breaks throughout. The link will register you for Day 1 only. Once you register, we will register you for Day 2. You will receive emails from Zoom with the meeting links for Day 1 and Day 2.
