ADA COMPLIANCE TRAINING AT THE TOUCH OF A FINGERTIP

 ADA COMPLIANCE TRAINING AT THE TOUCH OF A FINGERTIP
 ATLANTA, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Sealund & Associates (S&A) and CBM


Computer Center today announced a special offering combining the power of IBM's Ultimedia(A) products with Sealund's new software program, the Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance Training Library.
 The ADA Training Solution includes IBM's Personal System/2(A) (PS/2/A/) Ultimedia M57 SLC and 8516 Touch Display. This total plug- and-play multimedia solution, valued at over $13,000, is being made available through CBM Computer Center for $8,995 -- the price of the Library and Touch Display, if purchased separately -- thereby including the Ultimedia M57 at virtually no additional cost.
 "With this ADA multimedia solution, you can effectively train more people, in shorter periods of time, for less money, than with traditional training methods," says Bob Crocker, president and CEO of Kentucky-based CBM Computer Center. "As one of the top computer dealers in America and an IBM Business Partner, we felt CBM should take the lead in bringing this state-of-the-art technology and valuable compliance training tool to the businesses of America."
 As of July 26, all organizations employing 25 or more people (and come 1994, all organizations employing 15 or more) must comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. This law provides civil rights protection to people with disabilities, and penalties for non-compliance can be severe.
 The Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance Training Library, developed by Florida-based Sealund & Associates, an IBM Industry Applications Specialist, is computer-based, interactive multimedia training course incorporating sound and full-color photography.
 "Because it is important for employees at every level of a company to understand the ADA and comply with its provisions, S&A decided that IBM multimedia was the most efficacious method for disseminating this very complex information," says Barbara Sealund, president of Sealund & Associates. "Of equal importance, is the quality of the information. The ADA subject matter in this Library has been reviewed and endorsed by Abilities, Inc., a non-profit organization, recently designated as Florida's ADA Resource Center, which provides information, training and referral services to businesses, as well as people with disabilities," continued Sealund.
 The Library, on one CD, is divided into four training modules, each specialized for an individual audience: executive; human resource professional; supervisor; and employee. The four modules include:
 "How ADA Will Impact Your Workplace" --
 designed for high-level executives.
 "Implementing ADA in Your Workplace" --
 a "how to" approach for human resource
 personnel.
 "Including Persons With Disabilities In
 Your Workplace" -- strategies for managing
 and supervising individuals with
 disabilities.
 "Supporting Persons with Disabilities" --
 fostering employee awareness and sensitivity to
 individuals with disabilities.
 The PS/2 Ultimedia Model M57 SLC, regularly priced at $4,840, is IBM's first PS/2 with integrated multimedia features. In addition to being powered by IBM's own 386 cached processor, features include: 16-bit audio; XGA graphics; and a CD-ROM II drive that is compatible with standards for audio CD's DVI technology and CD-ROM Extended Architecture. The 8516 Touch Display, which sells for $1,565, is IBM's unique strain gage technology that allows touch sensitivity to 256 levels.
 "The built-in features of the PS/2 Ultimedia M57 SLC along with the 8516 Touch Display provide unparalleled power, speed and reliability making this an ideal plug-and-play system," says Michael Braun, assistant general manager, IBM Multimedia. "This multimedia ADA Training Solution provides business owners with the tools to understand and communicate the requirements for compliance with the ADA, as well as state-of-the-art technology that will grow with their business."
