​Access Consultancy Course

RIBA Members get 50% off the RIBA CPD Programme, compared to non-members

Inclusive design and accessibility can be a confusing and sometimes subjective area. RIBA Access Consultancy Course aims to help architects grow in confidence and understanding when discussing these issues with clients.

By attending this course, you will increase your understanding of user needs and the implications of a non-inclusive environment. The RIBA Access Consultancy Course will help you develop your knowledge of legislation and regulations covering inclusive design and gain a wider awareness of available best practice documents. The course will develop this knowledge and understanding through workshops including a mini-audit, design appraisals and mini-workshops discussing case studies. You will be provided with information regarding how to become an accredited Access Consultant with the National Register of Access Consultants (NRAC).
