Introduction to DDA Design and Audits Course

Making locations more acessible for all users

Making locations accessible for all users, whether it be those with disabilities, who have mobility issues, are elderly, is being seen as increasingly important worldwide, and is in fact law in many countries. In this course you will gain a strong understanding of how to understand how to make a location accessible friendly, and how to audit a location.

This course is for you if you:

  • manage a location and need to understand how to make the location suitable for all users.
  • want to become a DDA auditor (check locations for disability compliance in respect of wayfinding).
  • are looking to improve your knowledge and understanding on accessible environments.
