This course is for professionals who wish to undertake assessments of Changing Places (Accessible Adult Change Facilities), to confirm that designs or as – built structures, comply with the Building Code of Australia and the Changing Places Design Specification. The course provides relevant information regarding design, development and assessment of these facilities. It is a requirement for a person to undertake this course if they wish to issue a Certificate of Compliance for a Changing Places facility.
The lack of accessible adult change facilities creates major issues for people who need specialised equipment to go to the toilet when they are away from home. Carers often resort to using the floor of an accessible toilet, as the space for changing and toileting those they support, which is both inequitable and abhorrent.
In addition to attending the course, eligible participants who meet relevant prerequisites in their specified profession, will also be required to undertake an online, open book exam to be eligible to operate as a Changing Places Assessor.
Course Fee: $380.00 (plus GST) per person includes all course materials and catering.
Note: Enrolments are not yet open, however if you are interested in attending please email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to the Expression of Interest list.
