'Delivering an Excellent Service for Disabled Customers'. Staff training and workforce development is extremely valuable in becoming an inclusive facility. If staff attitude and organisational culture is not inclusive then this can prevent many people from using or getting much further than the facility's front door.

As a result, many organisations are missing out on the numerous benefits that disabled customers can offer as a large proportion of our population.

Staff training created through EFDS’s Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI) programme supports more organisations to reap the rewards of satisfied disabled customers and make active lives possible.

This e-learning course explores inclusive customer service, perceptions of disability, effective communication, legislation and much more. Completing the course can help to ensure everyone plays their part in creating a welcoming environment for disabled people.

There are many IFI Mark accredited facilities and although the training is essential for the staff at these sites, any businesses and individual can register for the course. This includes all front of house leisure centre staff e.g. gym staff, supervisors, facility staff, receptionists, caterers, cleaning staff and management.

The cost can be as little as at £6 +VAT per trainee.
