Accessibility Services Canada launched an updated version of its AODA training in March 2019, with new content and design to reflect the revisions to the AODA. This updated training can be used to meet your Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act training requirements.
Our online training is a time and cost effective way to meet your AODA responsibility to train all your staff and volunteers (don’t forget your Board Members!). This course is interactive and offers knowledge testing so that you can ensure that your staff and volunteers have not only met the AODA training requirement but thought about how to apply accessibility best practices to their own job.
Each person that requires training must have their own seat in the course. Discounts apply the more seats you purchase. Extra seats purchased will be held in reserve for up to one year. Discounts appear in the Checkout.
