This highly acclaimed course provides students with the skills required to provide advice on access to the built environment, as well as services and programs for people with a range of access challenges, including people with disabilities, older adults, emerging Baby Boomers, parents with prams and families.
This course is for professionals who want to undertake LHA or SDA Assessments and confirm compliance with these.
Developments that are required to meet the Livable Housing Australia (LHA) Design Guidelines, as well as Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) design categories (under the National Disability Insurance Scheme) must comply with the LHA Design Guidelines. The only person that can confirm compliance and issue the LHA Quality Mark is an LHA Registered Assessor. They must complete this course and successfully pass the on line test.
This talk is part of the 'Building Accessibility' series and discusses the need to provide an inclusive approach to building design and evacuation planning, to meet the needs of all occupants. Australian society is changing, we are living longer, extending our working lives and increasingly making our homes in taller buildings. Additionally, in 2011 building and disability legislation changed to make it mandatory to provide fully accessible workplaces and public spaces. However, the need to get everybody out in an emergency has generally been overlooked. This presentation argues a case to develop the concept of egressability to go hand in hand with accessibility.
This course is ideal for people who have responsibility for reviewing, planning, designing, managing or maintaining buildings, as well as those who are required to provide advice to others regarding access issues in the built environment.
The key elements of access to buildings, including relevant legislation and Disability (Access to Premises – Buildings) Standards 2010 are incorporated. The nationally recognised course provides participants with a practical framework and tools for undertaking an access audit of a building.
This ‘Bridging’ course provides students, who have completed the ‘face to face’ training sessions for the Certificate IV in Access Consulting, the opportunity to gain the Diploma of Access Consulting by completing additional required units of competency.
These additional units relate to the provision of advice on access to the built environment including additional access auditing elements, anthropometrics and ergonomics.

Access 101: Building Accessibility - Rooming Houses (Class 1b Buildings) Disability Access - The Facts
This talk discusses the disability access requirements for Class 1b buildings, including rooming houses, boarding houses, bed & breakfasts, small student accommodation buildings and holiday cabins. In 2011, building and disability legislation changed to require most Class 1b buildings to include accessible features for people with disability. This workshop discusses these requirements and aims to help landlords and small businesses operating rooming houses, B&Bs, student accommodation etc., to understand their obligations.
