The Disability Awareness Course (DAC) is an accredited online training tool delivered by Hands Free Computing.
This course has been designed to support line managers, HR managers and colleagues of disabled employees, achieve a better awareness of disabilities and long term health conditions that are frequently encountered at work.
DAC will provide a CPD accreditation for learners taking part and will help those individuals become more “Disability Confident” in the workplace.
Using a modular based learning system Hands Free Computing has broken down the disability awareness into 10 main categories enabling the training to be more flexible for the learner.
This means that the course does not have to be completed in one sitting, but it can be picked up and put down depending on the individuals availability.
These modules equate to approximately five hours of CPD learning and are accredited by the CPD Institute appointed CPD standards office.
Testing your Knowledge
Each module will have one or more quizzes embedded in them to test an individual’s knowledge and understanding of the topics covered in that section. The online system provides an instant response to the answers submitted providing support and encouragement to the individual learner.
What is the CPD Standards Office?
The CPD standards office provides independent accreditation to improve the quality of continuing professional development (CPD) and ensure positive and successful CPD experiences for all learners.
The CPD standards office aim to help training providers ensure that they are delivering consistently high quality training that is both inclusive and collaborative.
The CPD mark of excellence for training and learning providers demonstrate to individual professionals that the learning activity conforms to CPD best practice and is appropriate for inclusion in a formal CPD record.
Hands Free Computing is the only provider of CPD accreditation to work with and be recommended by the CPD Institute. The Institute also recognises Hands Free Computing as the U.K.’s most prestigious and a leading global provider of CPD accreditation. https://www.cpdstandards.com/
