The public training courses we launched this year were so well received, we’re continuing them in 2023. This year we’ve had people join us from around the world to learn more about digital accessibility. And we’ve helped guide developers, designers, content creators and testers on how to make their work more accessible.

New in 2023

You asked for them, so we’ll be running our courses more often. We’re also introducing a brand-new course – Accessibility testing for NVDA. And we’ve expanded our content courses, adding courses about accessible Word and PDF documents to our existing content course that discusses UX writing and forms.

About the courses

How many people are in each course?

There’s a maximum of 20 attendees for each course to ensure the best value for attendees, so be sure to get in early.

How long is each course?

Each course runs between 3 and 5 weeks with 1 2-hour session each week.

Where are the courses held?

Since all our courses are delivered online, you can join us from anywhere in the world. All of our courses currently run on an Australian timezone, however if you’re from Europe or North America, please talk to us. We’re continually reviewing our schedule, and we’d love to offer training to as many people as possible.

How much do they cost?

Ticket prices vary depending on the course. You can buy an individual ticket or we offer discounts for groups of 4 or more people.

Training for bigger groups?

If there’s 8 or more from the same organisation wanting the same course, talk to us as we may be able to offer training specific to you.
