Overview

The Accessibility Institute at Carleton University is proud to launch the Professional Education for Accessibility Competence (PEAC) program. PEAC is an accessibility education and training 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.
