APS & Mobility Aid Seminar 2022
Join us at Pilot Dogs for an APS & Mobility Aid seminar!
The APS & Mobility Aid Seminar will utilize discussion and demonstration to instruct learners of the history, uses, operation, and various designs of Accessible Pedestrian Signals (APS). Learners will attend classroom sessions at the Pilot Dogs campus to understand the basic functions of APS, its intended design, the challenges persons with visual impairment face when operating these systems, and techniques COMS can implement. Further instruction will be provided on O&M aids, the different types compared with each other, and how COMS can identify correct techniques and travel solutions.
This is a free, in-person seminar at the Pilot Dogs Administration building. The Pilot Dogs APS & Mobility Aid Seminar is for COMS instructors who need to obtain CE credit hours, and for anyone else interested in learning about visual impairment and mobility aids. Topics of discussion and demonstration include:
- Accessible Pedestrian Signals (APS) overview and demo of technology
- White cane vs. guide dog mobility
- Troubleshooting mobility aids
- Pilot Dogs 2.0 - our history and our future
For eligible COMS, a total of 4.5 CE hours will be credited for the completion of the course. CE hours are accredited by the ACVREP. A light lunch will be provided, as well as a tour of the Pilot Dogs campus. There is no cost to attend this course.
