Travel instruction is the professional activity of teaching individuals with disabilities, seniors, and others how to use public transportation independently to access their environment and community. One form of travel instruction is travel training, which is an intensive, individualized, one-on-one process to help someone gain the knowledge and skills he or she needs to use transit independently and safely.
MassDOT is funding a multi-day workshop for new and experienced travel trainers in Massachusetts. Staff from the Kennedy Center (CT) will offer one or more workshops depending on need in Massachusetts. The workshops will be approximately 3 days long and will be targeted to new travel trainers, though more experienced travel trainers are also welcome to attend. The cost of training and meals (breakfast and lunch) will be provided free of charge to participants, but overnight accommodation (if needed) and dinner will have to be covered by the participants.
If you are interested in attending this workshop or learning more about this opportunity, please fill out this brief survey.
