Venue Access Academy
The Venue Access Academy offers tools to become optimally effective in providing an accessible and inclusive experience to venue guests. It was developed in response to the growing recognition that people with disabilities make up the fastest growing minority population in the world and greater access for them equals greater equity and inclusion for all.
As part of the Venue Access Academy, venue professionals will have access to a number of live online training sessions that include Core Classes and Specialty Electives. These classes will be offered twice a month and will be 1 hour in length though an additional 30 minutes will be set aside after the class for extended Q & A with the instructor, Dr. Nanette Odell.
In between these courses, venue professionals will have time allotted for one-on-one consulting.
Core classes relate to the following disabilities and/or accommodations:

Each venue professional needs to complete 10 courses to gain their Venue Access Academy Certificate.
