You want to build accessibility thinking into every facet of your culture, and accessible design into every product you create. We have the accessibility training courses to get you there. We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the eSSENTIAL Accessibility Academy – comprising both live and on-demand training to help integrate accessibility best practices into every organizational workflow. 

eSSENTIAL Accessible 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 training classes 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,” where 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 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.

Our accessibility training curriculum provides a wealth of accessibility 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.
