Announcing the Launch of Our New Company Name and Website

Access Institute is excited to announce the launch of our new company name and website. Why have we changed our name from Institute of Access Training Australia (IATA) to Access Institute?

We feel it is now time to refresh our brand image to continue to set the benchmark for access advice and training in such an important industry.

Given our training and national courses relating to access and Universal Design to the built environment are highly sought after both in Australia and overseas, it is important to ensure that as many people as possible can access these easily. Providing a new name and website will support this.

All of our courses and access advisory services are provided by our team of qualified and accredited trainers and assessors who are industry experts. Each team member has a wealth of knowledge and experience across the access industry.

Access Institute’s new website will provide you with an easier way to learn about our services and increase the accessibility and visibility of our access and Universal Design training programs.

The new design allows for streamlined menus, clear navigation and a responsive layout for all platforms. It will provide better access for everyone and you will be able to book and pay for your courses and resources online.

Access Institute will regularly update its content, including course information, articles and blogs.

We hope you find the new website with a fresh look easy to explore. For any questions, suggestions, feedback or comments, please send us an email.

‘I want to thank you for a fantastic course yesterday. I always love learning new things in different ways and yesterday, I learnt even more about Universal Design in playspaces and public places. Your educators were passionate and knowledgeable and really engaging. Thank you for making such a big difference in the way places are designed. I reckon every landscape architect should do your course at a minimum before they are qualified to design places! All the best.’ — Bec Ho (Executive Officer), Touched by Olivia Foundation
