Assistive Listening and Compliance
(on site at InfoComm, Wednesday, June 17, 2015, 3:00pm - 4:30pm EST, room W306B)

Hearing disability is the number-one condition covered under the ADA/IBC, yet all too often whenever compliance is mentioned, other disabilities come to mind. It is important to understand the compliance needs of every project, including assistive listening. This course, geared specifically toward architects, consultants, and designers, provides a comprehensive overview of the legislative requirements for assistive listening. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about hearing loss, the largest disability covered under the codes, the specific types of assistive listening technologies, and other pertinent building code requirements.

Topics of discussion:
• Recent changes to compliance regulations and the legislative requirements for assistive listening systems
• Why assistive listening systems are mandatory and how the aforementioned regulations apply to every project
• The three types of assistive listening technology: Radio Frequency (RF), Infrared (IR), and Hearing Loop and why to use one versus another
• Understanding the needs of those with hearing loss and why hearing aids are not enough in venues

This free course qualifies for InfoComm CTS renewal credits and AIA HSW credits. Register at https://registration.experientevent.com/showinf151/

Listen Technologies is exhibiting at booth 959 at InfoComm 2015 in Orlando, Florida, June 17 - 19.
