TMS has recently completed a training course for Engineers working at Havering Borough Council. The one day course included a significant practical element, including a walk around Romford Town Centre accompanying TMS Associate trainer Paul Nicholls with his Guide Dog, Kinsey (shown in photo).
Paul had earlier in the day described the common hazards and barriers to mobility he finds on his journeys as a blind pedestrian. Delegates also received input regarding issues for users with physical, learning, and hearing impairments.
Feedback from delegates attending the course was very positive:
"Very interesting to see how Paul copes with crossing the road”
“Well presented, excellent to have Paul Nicholls contributing to the course”
“Excellent insight into issues for blind users”
“Very informative, practical and useful”
This course can be run in-house for both Local Authority and private sector clients. Please contact us for more information
