Dear Transit Colleague:
The National Transit Institute will be sponsoring a “Comprehensive ADA Paratransit Eligibility Determination” class in Newark, NJ on March 4-5, 2008.
The comprehensive course is intended for people who are interested in learning about several in-person interview/assessment tools and approaches to apply them in their systems. The course begins with a review of ADA Paratransit criteria and then reviews ADA Paratransit eligibility requirements. The two-day session presents more detailed information about alternative eligibility determination processes, with a focus on in-person interview and assessment options. It also addresses "difficult" determination issues and presents options for trip-by-trip eligibility determinations.
You can register for this class on-line at the National Transit Institute’s website at http://www.ntionline.com/ or by faxing in the attached registration form to (732) 932-1707.

Tuition shall be waived for federal, state and local government employees who work in transportation or related areas. There is a $300 fee for contractors and consultants.
Please feel free to distribute this throughout your organization as appropriate.
