eSSENTIAL Accessibility Academy: flexible courses, designed to fit the needs of your team

Whether you’re new to digital accessibility, or ready to deepen your understanding, the eSSENTIAL Accessibility Academy now offers a curriculum with the flexibility to learn at your own pace. Our accessibility training courses are thoughtfully designed based on job function to match responsibilities, ensuring all content is relevant and engaging. We start at a high level, with accessibility trainings like “Introduction to Digital Accessibility.” In it, we talk about why accessibility matters, and how you can embed accessible thinking into every facet of your organizational culture. Then we get into “Understanding Accessible Experiences.” In this training we focus on the perspective of people with disabilities and some of the barriers they face in their everyday lives. From there, we carve out accessibility training courses specific to functions, helping empower designers, developers, content creators, and customer service representatives. We also help build your in-house accessibility testing skills and we get into subjects like web and mobile accessibility testing. These accessibility training courses provide a wealth of expertise, whether you’re launching a website, building a mobile app, designing a digital product, or simply want to know more about the fundamentals of a more inclusive online experience.
