Improve the Accessibility of Your Facility

For people without a physical disability, walking up a flight of stairs is practically second nature. But, imagine if you couldn't walk and had to use another method to get up the stairs. Not so easy is it? For people with sight, reading a bus schedule at a terminal is not a problem. But, imagine if you couldn't see the map of bus routes. How would you find the right connecting bus to get to your destination?

Disabilities come in all forms and not all are 'visible.' Use of an elevator, bathroom, hallway, seating area, etc. can be difficult to access for people with a variety of disabilities if not properly installed or designed. The CAP program offers trainings that cover common concerns with meeting the basic requirements of access for people with disabilities. The trainings will go over common errors and omissions, and will give possible low cost ways to improve accessibility. Through these trainings you will be able to make your building more accessible and friendly to people with all kinds of disabilities.

Our trainings can be tailored to your specific timeframe, staffing, and capacity. We are at your service when learning about accessibility concerns! Here is a list of the trainings we can offer:
