In accordance with the AODA Accessibility Standards, the College is committed to providing training to its employees, all volunteers and all persons who provide goods, services, or facilities on behalf of the College.
The Accessibility Standards for Customer Service, Ontario Regulation 429/07 is not about ramps or automatic door openers. It’s about understanding that people with disabilities may have different needs. It can be as easy as asking “How can I help?” and making small changes to how you serve customers with disabilities. The Human Resources Department and Learning Innovation Centre (LInC) at Lambton College have developed an online training module for administrative staff, faculty and support staff in order to complete required AODA training.
Training to Educators (s. 16, AODA, IASR) ensures that school boards or educational or training institutions provide educators with accessibility awareness training. The training must be completed by all employees who are involved in program or course design, delivery or instruction.
The intent of this requirement is that all organizations train employees, volunteers, all those who participate in developing the organization’s policies, and all others who provide goods or services on behalf of the organization, about the requirements in the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation, as well as the Ontario Human Rights Code as it relates to people with disabilities.
Training on the Integrated Accessibility Standards and the Human Rights Code as it pertains to persons with disabilities (s.7, AODA, IASR)
All new staff, whether full-time or part-time, must successfully complete the training and forward their completed certificates to the Human Resources Department.
Lambton College employees can access these training modules through D2L.
