Would you like to become a leader in accessibility? As an architect, qualifying for a Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification™ (RHFAC) Professional designation will provide you with the knowledge and practical skills needed to rate a building for its overall accessibility under the RHFAC program. RHFAC is a comprehensive rating system that measures the accessibility of buildings and sites and promotes increased access through the adoption of universal design principles. This program is the only one in Canada using a rating system to identify and certify built environments on a consistent methodology.
The RHFAC Accessibility Assessor Training combines theory and hands-on practice to teach individuals who are involved in the planning, designing, and construction industry how to understand accessibility from the perspective of people with disabilities, and measure the accessibility of their venues. This 48-hour course is the first step to qualifying for an RHFAC Professional designation.
