Multi-Sensory Impairment Awareness - Level 2 - Online Course - CPD Accredited.

Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's online Multi-Sensory Impairment training course for front-line healthcare and social care providers. All our online training courses, programmes and qualifications are accredited by the CPD Certification Service (CPDUK).

Sensory impairment is when one of the senses; sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste and spatial awareness, is no longer normal. If one wears glasses, they have a sight impairment, and if one finds it hard to hear or have a hearing aid, then they have a hearing impairment.

A person does not have to have a full loss of a sense to be sensory impaired. However, these impairments may affect many aspects of their lives. Our multi-sensory impairment training courses were designed to give learners a broader awareness of these problems so that they are better able to support them.
