Securement 102: Securing Difficult Mobility Devices (BRAND-NEW) 

Over 30 years after ADA changed the transportation landscape throughout North America by guaranteeing passengers with disabilities access to public transportation, providers still consistently struggle to safely secure many mobility devices. This advanced course addresses this challenge by building on the principles covered in Securement 101: Basic Wheelchair Securement Training, to provide transportation directors, supervisors, and trainers with a wide range of strategies, tips, and recommendations to help their agencies effectively secure and safely transport the most difficult mobility devices. The first four lessons of the course explore the factors that have contributed to this dynamic, explain what it really means for a mobility device to be effectively secured during transportation, and provide troubleshooting practices for complex powered mobility devices, scooters, and occupant securement use. The final lesson of course offers a series of best practice recommendations, based on our more than 35 years of industry experience, that can help transportation providers greatly reduce the risk these devices pose to the safety of their passengers and the liability of the agency.
