Training

The ILRU staff and affiliates design and provide training for a number of audiences at scheduled trainings throughout the year and in response to requests for customized training. A variety of teaching modalities are used to effectively deliver information on a wide range of topics. Topics include independent living, the ADA, access to information technology and sensitivity to disability. Training may be delivered in-person, via a live webinar or teleconference, or online or on-demand.

Training modalities include:

On-demand Training

A variety of topics are addressed in our on-demand training catalog. Many earlier on-location trainings can be viewed as video recordings allowing you to become a virtual participant in the virtual training.

Online Courses

These three- or four-week online courses are offered throughout the year and allow you to remotely participate with the instructor and fellow classmates as you work through the topic using an online learning platform. Additional information on participating in an online course is available here and on the course page
