FREE training sessions on accommodating and serving people with disabilities will be offered as part of Canada’s 150th and Montréal’s 375th anniversary celebrations.
Kéroul will offer a series of free training sessions to workers in the tourism sector (hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions), and to the volunteers and organizers involved in the many festivals and events taking place in Montréal this summer!
Training in French will be available in 90-minute and three-hour sessions ; training in English will be offered in one 90-minute session on June 19 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The training will focus on accommodating people with disabilities. It will provide participants with useful tips and advice on how to welcome and serve this clientèle.
- Different types of disability (motor, visual, hearing, speech, intellectual, mental health disorder, and autism spectrum disorder)
- Proper terminology to be used
- Practical tips
- How to adapt your approach with a disabled person
The courses will be facilitated by two trainers who, themselves, have a functional limitation. You will have the opportunity to talk to them about their specific situation. A checklist and certificate will be handed out.
