    Heidi Hernandez

    Learning & Development Consultant

    PuzzleHR

    As a SHRM-certified professional, I possess a solid foundation of knowledge in HR (Human Resources) practices and principles. I have over 17 years of experience in Human Capital Management from account management to sales. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to train and develop individuals on my team. This ignited my passion for people development, and I have loved every minute of it!

    During the earliest years of my career, I worked for the largest privately held talent management firm, The Allegis Group, to identify top-level talent. For me, this taught me the foundations of professionalism, a strong work ethic, striving for excellence, and crushing goals!

    Following my time with The Allegis Group, I spent 10 years working for Paychex, one of America’s Most Admired Companies. While at Paychex, I managed overly complex client accounts within the Professional Employment (PEO) division. Looking for a new challenge within Paychex, I shifted my focus toward becoming a sales representative and succeeded admirably. Consistently ranking among the top 15% of sales reps nationwide, I gained invaluable insight into what clients prioritize and how to respond to their needs.

    My background in both operations and sales has provided me with valuable insight into what clients prioritize and how to meet their needs. This has broadened my understanding of the motivations and mindsets of sales and service professionals.

    In 2020, I was approached by PuzzleHR to help assist in establishing a successful client onboarding experience for our new clients. The goal was to ensure a stellar first experience with our service divisions. Shortly thereafter, I joined the Learning & Development Team. My primary goal is to build and facilitate training programs; programs that foster the development of important skills such as emotional intelligence, a growth mindset, effective leadership in times of change, the ability to set clear expectations, and professional mentoring. I take tremendous pride in providing people with the skills and knowledge they need to reach their full potential!

    My career has been marked by excellence and drive within each role I have held.

    This session will go beyond the minimum requirements of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design for recreation facilities, including considerations for surfacing, site amenities, site arrival points, outdoor inclusive fitness equipment, play areas, and much more. Attendees will develop a better understanding of the features that make a park or play area inclusive for everyone.

    Sponsored by PlayCore

    Ensuring inclusion, regardless of age or ability, to independently participate in a wide range of recreation facilities is the goal of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design. Adopted by the Department of Justice (DOJ), the standards establish minimum accessibility requirements for all new construction or alterations of existing recreational facilities after March 15, 2012. The standards apply to state and local government facilities covered by Title II and places of public accommodation covered by Title III. This session will go beyond the minimum requirements of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design for recreation facilities including considerations for surfacing, site amenities, site arrival points, outdoor inclusive fitness equipment, play areas, and much more. Attendees will develop a better understanding of the features that make a park or play area inclusive for everyone. The session will provide tools and resources to help evaluate the level of compliance of existing recreation facilities.

    Learning objectives:

    • Outline at least two minimum standards for accessible play areas required under the 2010 ADA Standards. 
    • List at least three key considerations to create accessible routes to and within play and recreation destinations.
    • Evaluate a variety of park amenities and identify barriers that may restrict people with disabilities from being able to fully participate in the provided recreational opportunities.
    • Identify helpful resources to obtain additional information or to utilize when evaluating new and existing play and recreation environments.

    Professional licensing examination uses an industry standard known as High Level Testing. This is a method of testing that requires the application of knowledge rather than knowledge recall itself. It is the utilization of knowledge, in critical thinking situations, to resolve problems. This webinar adapts Bloom’s Taxonomy to outline the basic levels of comprehension that are necessary to utilize knowledge in the application of “skills and abilities” in Landscape Architecture.

    Professional licensing examination uses an industry standard known as High Level Testing. This is a method of testing that requires the application of knowledge rather than knowledge recall itself. It is the utilization of knowledge, in critical thinking situations, to resolve problems. This webinar adapts Bloom’s Taxonomy to outline the basic levels of comprehension that are necessary to utilize knowledge in the application of “skills and abilities” in Landscape Architecture.

    CLARB, in creating the L.A.R.E., has adopted a taxonomy of measurable verbs to define the extent of the knowledge, skills, and abilities that are being tested. The L.A.R.E. is testing for what a “minimally competent landscape architect needs to know so as to protect public health, safety and welfare”. This is the basis of the licensure laws in the United States and Canada. It is to your advantage to recognize that the vast majority of exam items are written to specifically test for an application level of proficiency. Therefore, memory recall type items (e.g., Jeopardy) are only minimally addressed. These are often in the form of Multiple Choice items, which are being used to a lesser extent on the L.A.R.E..

    On this basis, it stands to reason that you must prepare in a way that encourages critical thinking. You MUST be able to apply as well as analyze and evaluate relevant information if you are to successfully complete the exam.
