Accessibility Customer Service Training

This web training site has been developed by the Town of Carleton Place to assist with the Accessibility Customer Service Training of employees and volunteers at specific municipal facility locations.
 
The portion of the training site dealing with support persons, service animals, notice of service disruption forms and the feedback process should be viewed by all employees and volunteers.
 
This web training site should also be reviewed in conjunction with the following website: http://www.mcss.gov.on.ca/mcss/serve-ability/splash.html as determined by each departmental manager.
 
For new employees hired after December 31, 2009, accessibility training must be completed as soon as feasible and at the latest, six months after their hiring date.
