Free Access to Digital Accessibility Courses for People with Disabilities
In honor of Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2016, we will now be offering scholarships for free access to our entire curriculum of Deque University online courses in web and digital accessibility for people with disabilities.
Employment for people with disabilities is often difficult, with discrimination during the hiring process and barriers to employment all along the way, including barriers to acquiring the skills necessary for employment.
Meanwhile, the demand for accessibility professionals is greater than it has ever been, and people with disabilities have a lot to offer in this field. They live the experience, so in many ways they’re already experts! But there are still technical skills to learn — that’s where the Deque University classes can help.
Our mission is to help achieve digital equality for people with disabilities, and we want to empower users with disabilities to participate and become the experts that will teach businesses and governments and everyone else who shares the web how to be accessible.
If you have a disability, you qualify for a scholarship for free access to Deque’s in-depth web accessibility curriculum for a full year (a value of $315).
