The Centre for Accessible Environments (CAE) is planning on running more online courses after dipping its toe into the world of virtual training.
The organisation – which is the UK’s leading authority on inclusive design and management – launched its first virtual course last week.
The three-hour long ‘Introduction to Access and Inclusive Design’ was delivered in a friendly and interactive online forum using video communication platform Zoom.
The course, which was been developed based on the most popular CAE training content, discussed the breadth and scope of access and inclusion while providing an overview of the relevant legislation including the Equality Act.
This training session offered a useful introduction for individuals considering a career in access, designers improving their knowledge and those looking towards possible future accreditation from the National Register of Access Consultants.
As well as inclusive design and access awareness, the session covered the Equality Act 2010, planning policy and Building Regulations relating to access.
CAE’s access and training Advisor, Nasser Rad said “With all the quality of content and CAE’s most highly regarded trainers leading the virtual classroom, it represents excellent value for money and a great introduction to the world of access and equality legislation.”
