Accessibility Training from Deque University

SUNY has entered into an agreement with Deque Systems Inc. to provide accessibility training across all SUNY campuses. 

Curriculum 

The full curriculum contains over 30 courses that will be valuable to web developers, content editors, and all faculty and staff who create online materials (see the Deque University website for details).  

The courses are online, self-paced, and take from 30 minutes to 6 hours to complete. Most courses will take 60-90 minutes. Courses are designed for a wide range of technical skills from easy to advanced. The Introduction page included for each course provides information on the primary intended audience, technical level, suggested prerequisites, and duration. 

Courses are arranged into several curricula including Web Accessibility, Document Accessibility, Native Mobile Apps, and Customer Service for People with Disabilities. Courses include quizzes that when successfully completed provide a course certificate.  

It is recommended that everyone complete the “Accessibility Fundamentals - Disabilities, Guidelines, and Laws” course first, then take additional courses that meet your interests and technical skill level.
