Staff Training

Bus staff being trained by Jane Bryce from Guide Dogs NSW/ACT

Guide Dogs offers staff training tailored to your specific needs. The training includes a range of subjects relating to working with people with vision loss and training people who have a vision impairment.

Councils, architects, environmental designers, town planners, engineers, restaurants and clubs and transport authorities can book an information session with a Guide Dogs representative to learn how a person with vision impairment can travel independently in the community, learn more about the practical application of the current Australian Standards relating to vision impairment, and learn to design environments more effectively for people with vision impairment.

Guide Dogs NSW/ACT has developed information sessions for various community groups, which cover a range of subjects relating to vision impairment.  Their speakers will tailor the talk to your specific needs and interests, and work with you to identify a suitable length and mutually convenient location for the session.  All sessions are provided at no direct cost to our clients.
