Public Service Announcement
It has come to our attention that the idea of teaching trainings regarding individuals with challenges (both seen and unseen) has become an attractive way for individuals and organizations to make money. They "sell" their trainings to unsuspecting companies and agencies with little or no experience in presenting trainings, often recruiting trainers that have no experience in the subject they are teaching, and even attempt to sell Certificates of Completion to attendees at the end of each presentation.
Please be aware that just because one may know someone with a disability does not mean that they are experienced in presenting trainings so that attendees have a wonderful educational experience and learn how to apply techniques that will help them interface with the general public.
If you choose to employ another training firm please ask plenty of questions regarding the training format, the trainer that will be presenting the training and their background in the topic they are speaking on (e.g. if they are training First Responders please confirm that the planned trainer has a background in working with First Responders as well as experience with people with disabilities), and if there are any hidden costs or upselling that is part of the program you are looking to hire.
(Note: At U.L.F. we only employ Master Trainers competent and proficient in the industry they are presenting to and have been vetted to assure a first-hand knowledge of people with disabilities.)
