Phase 2:
Creating Inclusive Classroom Instruction

Ensure Vendors Provide Accessible Training

Did you know?

To be compliant with the Workforce Opportunity and Investment Act (WIOA), any state-run programs need to ensure their training vendors have the “ability to provide training that is physically and programmatically accessible for individuals who are employed and individuals with barriers to employment, including individuals with disabilities.”

If you outsource instruction of your apprentices to a third-party vendor, you will want to confirm your procurement language sets expectations that your vendors understand and use accessibility best practices when training your apprentices

  • PEAT’s Buy IT! resource helps employers and their purchasing staff build accessibility and usability into their technology procurement processes and provides example procurement language that you can use as a model when hiring training vendors.
