Commitment to Equal Training Opportunities
TRAINCO complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as amended by the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) and is committed to providing equal training opportunities to qualified individuals with disabilities. Consistent with this commitment, TRAINCO will provide a reasonable accommodation to disabled students if the reasonable accommodation would allow the individual to perform the essential functions of the CDL training, unless doing so would create an undue hardship.
Requesting a Reasonable Accommodation
If a student believes an accommodation is needed because of his/her disability, they are responsible for requesting the reasonable accommodation from Mike Moscinski. They may make the request in writing. The written request is required to include relevant information, such as:
- A description of the accommodation that is being requested.
- The reason an accommodation is needed for training.
- How the accommodation will help with performing the essential functions needed for CDL training.
After receiving the written accommodation request, TRAINCO will engage in an interactive dialogue with the student to determine the precise limitations of their disability and explore potential reasonable accommodations that could overcome those limitations. TRAINCO encourages students to suggest specific reasonable accommodations that they believe would allow them to perform accurately during training. However, TRAINCO is not required to make the specific accommodation requested and may provide an alternative, effective accommodation, to the extent any reasonable accommodation can be made without imposing an undue hardship on TRAINCO.
TRAINCO makes determinations about reasonable accommodations on a case-by-case basis considering various factors and based on an individualized assessment in each situation.
TRAINCO strives to make determinations on reasonable accommodation requests expeditiously, and will inform the individual once a determination has been made. If there are any questions about a reasonable accommodation request made, please contact Mike Moscinski.
If the student’s disability or need for accommodation is not obvious, TRAINCO may ask said student to provide supporting documents showing that they have a disability within the meaning of the ADA and applicable state or local laws, and that their disability necessitates a reasonable accommodation. If the information provided in response to this request is insufficient, TRAINCO may require an examination with a health care professional of TRAINCO’s choosing, at TRAINCO’s expense. In those cases, if the student fails to provide the requested information or see the designated health care professional, the request for a reasonable accommodation may be denied.
TRAINCO will keep confidential any medical information that it obtains in connection with the request for a reasonable accommodation.
Individuals will not be retaliated against for requesting an accommodation in good faith. TRAINCO expressly prohibits any form of discipline, reprisal, intimidation, or retaliation against any individual for requesting an accommodation in good faith.
TRAINCO is committed to enforcing this policy and prohibiting retaliation against any student who requested an accommodation in good faith. However, the effectiveness of our efforts depends largely on individuals telling us about inappropriate conduct. If a student feels that they or someone else may have been subjected to conduct that violates this policy, they should report it immediately. If students do not report retaliatory conduct, TRAINCO may not become aware of a possible violation of this policy and may not be able to take appropriate corrective actions.
