NCBI is excited to be launching its first ever on-line training programme, entitled ‘Fundamentals in Assistive Technology’ on Saturday 16th September.

The course, an initiative of NCBI’s Technology Specialist Team, is designed to give a broad overview of assistive technologies used by people with impaired vision and will run over a three month period. Students will learn how assistive and mainstream technologies can work together to provide access to solutions in environments including education, work and leisure.

It will be primarily delivered online alongside two on-site training days where students will be given a chance to try out much of the technology that features in the course for themselves.

If you are interested in participating in the next Fundamentals in Assistive Technology Course please let us know. You can contact Stuart Lawler or JP Corcoran in NCBI on 018307033.
