Laurentian to offer accessibility training program in partnership with Rick Hansen Foundation


Laurentian University has partnered with the Rick Hansen Foundation to offer the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification (RHFAC) Training program throughout the next year. The program will cover accessibility in the built environment and how to identify potential barriers for those with a vision, hearing, or mobility disability. It will also introduce participants to Universal Design principles, legislation, and accessibility standards and prepare them for the RHFAC Professional Exam. “This partnership allows us to contribute to creating a more inclusive society by equipping professionals with the necessary knowledge and skills to enhance accessibility in the built environment,” said Laurentian Manager of Micro-Credentials and Non-Credit Programming Christina Sckopke.
