In response to the 2019 Legislative Review of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 by the Honourable David Onley, the OBOA has created, Beyond the Code, a training program developed to broaden the understanding of the challenges faced by people with disabilities. The program also teaches how to ensure healthy and safe environments, not only in buildings, but in all spaces.
The course material focuses on accessible design for both Building Officials and design professionals with the scope of this training extending beyond the basic technical barrier-free design requirements found in the Ontario Building Code regulations.
This workshop consisting of four modules, which total a full day of in-depth training, include accessibility design considerations in all spaces. Going beyond the technical requirements listed in the Code, course material provides the rationale behind the regulations with specific attention paid to why removing barriers to those with disabilities is essential in our society.
OBOA’s Beyond the Code accessibility course is being offered at an introductory Member rate of $100 plus HST. Sign up now!
The courses are scheduled for:
Oct. 14 and 15, 2021
Nov. 18 and 19, 2021
