​Why take RHFAC Accessibility Assessor Training?
As our population ages, more people will experience temporary or permanent disabilities. Recent research demonstrates that almost 50% of Canadian adults have or have experienced a permanent or temporary physical disability, or live with someone who has. You will learn to understand accessibility from the perspective of people with mobility, vision, and hearing disabilities.

This intensive course provides the knowledge and practical skills needed to review commercial, institutional, or multi-family residential settings for meaningful accessibility. You’ll be trained through interactive instructor presentations, in-class exercises, disability simulation experiences, reading assignments, and small and large group work. The course is designed for professionals with experience in the built environment, such as architects, engineers, urban planners, interior designers, and designated building trades.
