Accessible Communications and Marketing

Our online training sessions are live and interactive with an experienced instructor, and run as 2 hour sessions over a 4 week period. Each attendee requires access to a desktop or laptop computer with a good internet connection, and either a headset or microphone and speakers. Instructions for Zoom will be sent with the invitation. You will receive a copy of the handbook and instructions via email prior to the first training session. 

Accessible Communications and Marketing training teaches attendees to create accessible online web content, social media, emails, video and audio, and marketing. We’ll demonstrate solutions to achieve WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, as well as usability and accessibility best practices gathered through our own research and user testing across various disability groups.
