    Accessibility / diversity training has been required for transportation/public entities for a while and I have actually conducted it for an airport bus company. There was no set curriculum, and it was mostly left to me with the company asking I focus on the perspective of an international traveler. Then they only had to submit that staff had training to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transportation and Travel. I assume it will be similar. Hopefully the next step will be to create a curriculum. (Note: I wasn’t their first “instructor”, so perhaps the 1st year a company does the training there is actually a set curriculum and subsequent years can be more free.)
