There are five separate modules. Module 1 gives a definition and context for accessible tourism. Module 5 provides principles, tools and good practice examples.

There is a companion module, Public-Private Partnerships and Good Practices, which has a European focus. It covers sporting events, transportation, parks and gardens as well as heritage sites with lots of examples.
