Access Training

Disability Access & Awareness Training Courses, including DDA

Disability awareness and built environment trainingEqual Access provides training sessions that cover a variety of disability-related topics. We have a number of specific training modules, but can tailor training sessions to suit your organisation thereby ensuring that the content has direct relevance to your attendees.

Our sessions cover general disability awareness training, as well as detailed technical workshops.

We usually deliver training at your own venue to allow organisations to cater for the needs of their staff and complement their budgets. However, if desired, we can also arrange your entire venue and catering needs or delivery the workshops electronically.

Our price to deliver each session is based upon the time to prepare for the session, travel to the venue (where applicable) and deliver the session. Our fees are not based upon the number of attendees, so our sessions can be delivered to small targeted groups or within large auditoriums for the same price. Give us a call on 1300 994 890 to find out more.
