The Accessibility Institute at Carleton University is proud to launch the Professional Education for Accessibility Competence (PEAC) program. PEAC is an accessibility education program designed for individuals, professionals, supervisors, leaders, and teams. This program is intended to help you upskill your accessibility knowledge and confidence in professional and workplace settings.

With PEAC you will build knowledge and capacity to better understand accessibility and disability perspectives and practices, as well as develop practical skills and gain access to tangible tools to enhance inclusivity within your role, team, and organization.


Learners who successfully complete the required competencies within 12 months will be awarded a Certificate of Core Competencies in Accessibility. Learners who successfully complete additional Competencies will earn a Badge of Completion that can be added to the Certificate. See the cost below for eligibility for reduced rates with registrations in bulk (three or more courses within a designated period).
