Training

We're proud to be the leading provider of accessibility training in Australia. Our courses enable professionals and whole organisations to achieve the highest standards in digital accessibility and communication. The advice and training we provide is based on the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1, as well as best practices from our extensive experience working with people with a wide range of abilities.

For many organisations, our face-to-face one-day courses have become an essential pathway for delivering inclusive services in alignment with the Australian Government's Digital Service Standard, and are widely renowned for their highly comprehensive and engaging delivery.

Digital Access is committed to providing continuous support and improvement in accessibility. In 2019 we are offering advanced public training workshops for Microsoft Office and Adobe PDF, and providing a public offering of our popular Inclusive Design Workshop.

About the trainers

Our trainers are highly skilled professionals with extensive experience in accessibility conformance, inclusive design and the needs of people with disability or impairment. With backgrounds in front-end development, software engineering, website design, UX and research, they bring a wealth of knowledge to every workshop and create an effective learning environment for all participants. All our trainers are international experts in their subject matter.

Testimonial

Bupa Digital is extremely appreciative of the value Vision Australia training has made to the team. Throughout the training, Vision Australia provided practical examples of ways to address WCAG criteria. They were thorough, in-depth sessions that were relevant for all roles within our team.

Further, Vision Australia tailored the training courses to suit our specific needs, meaning more valuable, relevant content to the team. What was particularly engaging was how the training courses elicited a sense of empathy in the team. User stories, videos and visitors demonstrated the challenges facing our users with a disability, and how critical we were to building products that support them.

The deep dive consultation gave our team confidence in our approach to accessibility going forward and highlighted some immediate changes we could make.”
