JAN training events
JAN staff members conduct around 200 trainings and public appearances per year. These include public trainings, interviews, exhibit booths, and collaborative meetings. Most of the in-person trainings are by invitation from the sponsoring entity and are classified as advanced or expert level.
Requests for JAN staff to provide training at an event should be made four months in advance of the event. There is no speaker fee for JAN staff to participate in an event. If travel is required ALL travel expenses for JAN staff must be reimbursed. JAN staff members also conduct Webcast trainings using a remote training platform or sponsoring agency platforms. These include the JAN sponsored Accommodation and Compliance Webcast Series that began in 2006. This series includes several Webcasts in which JAN collaborates with other agencies and employers provide information about employer best practices. This series continually sells out within a short period of time after being posted. JAN staff also present one or more special webcast events throughout the year.
Topics for trainings include job accommodations for a variety of impairments and the ADA and Rehabilitation Act. JAN also provides materials, including PowerPoint slides, handouts, and other accessible documents.
