Class typically runs for the entire four hours, so plan accordingly.
If you are not familiar with downtown Columbus allow yourself ample time to find parking. Depending on where you park you may be walking several blocks to Rhodes State Office Tower.
The Statehouse Underground Parking Garage is open to the public and can accommodate vehicles under 6'6" in height. The tunnel entrance from the Statehouse parking garage is an access badge-only entrance. It is not open to the public. Signage will direct visitors to enter the building through the Broad Street lobby.
Additionally, several parking garages and lots are within a two-to-four-block walking area. On-street parking around Rhodes tower is limited. Downtown Columbus has a number of streets that are one-way only during the daytime, which can make driving more difficult.
Rhodes Tower is a controlled access facility, and visitors will need to present a government issued photo identification to security, and obtain a visitor's badge. This badge must be worn and be visable at all times. You must be registered for training or you may be turned away by security. Access to Rhodes Tower is limited to the basement and lobby area and the 18th floor.
-- Visitors will be required to register at the security desk on the west side of the lobby by showing valid government-issued photo ID.
--Visitors will be required to go through the magnetometer.
--Visitors’ belongings, such as bags, purses, and briefcases, will go through an X-ray machine.
All trainings are intended to reflect the current policies and procedures of Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities and Medicaid rules. As new information becomes available it is the responsibility of the provider to keep current with policy changes.
