The CCB GTT Program


What is GTT?

The CCB GTT Program is a national training and support program that facilitates increased independence with the help of efficiently-
utilized accessible technology.

The CCB GTT Program has enjoyed tremendous success since its inception, and has quickly and seamlessly adapted to the unique needs and challenges of its participants.

The program’s main component consists of several weekly meetings and training sessions, open to all Canadians, delivered over the Zoom platform. These sessions encompass the entire spectrum of Assistive Technology (AT). From a “Back to Basics” session to in-depth product and app training, the program covers it all. Many of the meetings are recorded and made available via the programs Podcast feed.

“One on one” support is also available as well as “In person” group sessions and meetings are offered in various parts of Canada.

The program also utilizes social media extensively offering a blog, Facebook pages and groups and Twitter feed to help disseminate information to its participants in this fast paced ever changing environment. A tech “Support List”, where immediate help from other participants, is also a key element of the program.
