Certified Environmental Access Consultant (CEAC) Accessible Design & Consulting, Inc.
The C.E.A.C. (Certified Environmental Access Consultant) certification was created to reduce the disparity in training and practice found among professionals who evaluate the environmental access needs of the elderly and physically challenged, as well as to promote independence and empowerment among the disabled and elderly.
The credential was launched to answer the distinct need for formal education, validation, and credibility in this rapidly exploding field. Certified professionals gain valuable career enhancement that can be immediately applied to their professional careers.
The C.E.A.C. is a recognized certification for professionals engaged in environmental access, including but not limited to Independent Living Specialists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Remodeling Contractors and Builders, Interior Designers, Engineers, Rehabilitation Specialists, Case Managers, Public Health Nurses, Assistive Technology Specialists, Life Care Planners, and other professionals creating accessibility or working in the environmental access field.
The C.E.A.C. credential is recognized by payers (ex: claims adjusters, grant administrators, case managers, risk managers, health care professionals, federal & state social service directors, professional organizations, consumers) and others who continually seek qualified specialists in environmental access to complete design specifications, building, remodeling, code compliance consulting, ADL assessments, and aging-in-place needs. These individuals view the C.E.A.C certification as a symbol of competence that separates the environmental access industry from a para-professional trade. Professionals possessing the C.E.A.C have further been approved by various states’ legal systems as expert witnesses, and have a broadened field of consulting opportunities.
A C.E.A.C. credential can provide the Specialist with:
- Validation of professional practice
- Recognition in the professional marketplace
- Credibility with prospective clients and consumers
- Increased opportunity for job referrals and consultation
- Expert witness opportunities in the legal system
- Collaboration with healthcare teams
