Become a certificated accessibility pro. Our accessibility-training conveys you a comprehensive overview over fundamental details, hints for implementation and evaluation of accessibility-requirements. We will note accessibility shortcomings and address how they can be improved. Additionally, you learn practical adjustments directly for you own website or for mobile applications. The analysis and optimization of internal processes regarding accessibility as well as the development of recommendations for future-proof applications are also part of accessibility and the training. Frontal lectures are tiring at some point? We think so too! The training is an interactive experience with an “aha” effect, in which your questions are directly addressed.
