Who is this course for?
The content of the course is focused on technical accessibility requirements and implementations. It does not currently address visual UI/UX accessibility requirements (like typography and colors). But if you’re a designer who knows some HTML and CSS , this course can help you understand technical accessibility requirements and constraints so you can make more inclusive design decisions, as well as collaborate more efficiently with the engineers on your team (which may make you your engineering team’s favorite designer!)
You’re the ideal audience of the course if you are:
a developer who wants to understand accessibility and implement Web user interfaces that work for people with disabilities
a design engineer working closely with designers, diagnosing accessibility issues in the design before they make it to implementation
a designer who works closely with developers (who ideally also knows some HTML and CSS) and wants to level-up their accessibility knowledge and improve their collaboration with engineers
Can I take this course if I am a complete beginner in accessibility?
Yes! The course is 100% beginner-friendly. I designed the course to be inclusive of individuals with little or no prior accessibility experience. So, you don’t need any prior accessibility knowledge to take it.
That being said, the content of the course starts with the basics of each topic covered, and builds up to more advanced concepts. We will discuss different accessibility topics in-depth, and we will tackle some of them from angles that may be different from what you are used to.
If you’re a beginner in accessibility, you will acquire the knowledge that will make an accessibility champion within your team. 🎖
And if you’re already comfortable with accessibility and just want a good refresher, I’m confident that you’ll find a lot of value in it, and you will probably even learn a few new things!
Will I be able to apply what I learn in my project(s)?
Yes, absolutely! The course is very practical (hence the name!). You will be able to take the knowledge and techniques you will learn and apply them in your own work right away.
Can I track my progress as I go through the course chapters?
Yes. Once you’ve finished a chapter, you can manually mark that chapter as complete. We don’t automatically track your progress. I care about your privacy and understand and respect that everyone learns at their own pace, and some people sometimes need or want more time. And the last thing I want to do is to make you feel uncomfortable.
When you mark a chapter as complete, a visual indicator is shown for the chapter indicating that it has been completed, so you can get a clear overview of which chapters you have left by looking at the list of chapters on the course Chapters page.
Do you offer a certficate of completion?
Yes! But the process is not automated yet—meaning that the certificate is not automatically generated when you finish going through the course. The reason is that I am planning on extending the course’s content in the future. Automating the generation of the certificate of completion before adding the extra chapters to the course is a little tricky.
If you need a certificate of completion to present to your boss at work, to include in your CV, or to share it with your friends on social media, or simply to feel good about your accomplishment, you can send me an email and I will provide you with a downloadable PDF of your certificate.
Do you offer discounts for students?
Yes, absolutely. Student discounts are tailored and customized to individual cases, and I will evaluate and customize the discount on a case-by-case basis.
To qualify for a student discount, you must be currently enrolled in a full-time or part-time educational institution.
Please email me a proof of active enrollment, such as a student ID card or registration paperwork. If you have a .edu email address, sending me an email from that address is sufficient proof.
Can I purchase multiple licenses for my group or team?
Yes! With a team license you can buy a number of seats to allocate to employees, friends, or anyone you’d like to support by gifting or donating the course to.
Seats are not transferable — they cannot be re-assigned once used.
Team packages will come with bulk discounts. Please note that due to their nature, refunds will not be available for team packages.
Learn more about team packages.
For enterprise licenses and/or in-house training, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Can I gift a license to someone else?
Yes! You can do that by entering their email address instead of yours during checkout. When you do, they will receive an email to set up their account and access the course content.
The only caveat here is that they will receive a copy of the purchase receipt, which will include the last 4 digits of your credit card if you’re paying by credit. And if you need a copy of the receipt, you’re going to need to ask them to forward it to you.
If you (understandably) don’t feel comfortable with this, you can purchase the course using your own email address and email me yours and the other person’s email address.
Please note that you cannot transfer your own license to someone else.
I purchased the course. Now what?
After you go through checkout, you should get redirected to a Thank You page (not the Paddle thank you dialog!). Once you’re redirected, an account is automatically created for you, and you should receive two emails in your Inbox: a purchase receipt from my merchant, Paddle, and an email with a link to complete and access your account.
Check your email inbox for these emails, and make sure to check your Spam folder just in case it lands there.
If you don’t receive either of these emails or you have any trouble logging in, don’t hesitate to reach out to email@example.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
What’s your refund policy?
If you need a refund for your purchase, you can reach out to me by email within 30 days after your purchase and let me know. When you do, make sure you provide your order number and/or billing email. I will ask you the reason why, but you will be eligible for the refund even if you don’t want to provide any feedback. No hard feelings.
When the refund is issued, you’ll get a refund confirmation email from my merchant, Paddle, and your course account will be deleted. We won’t keep any of your account information, so please keep a copy of your purchase and refund receipts in case you ever need them.
Please note that due to their nature, refunds are not available for team packages.
Will I get a receipt/invoice for my purchase?
Right after purchasing, you will be emailed a receipt/invoice from Paddle, our merchant. You will be able to edit the recipient details on the receipt/invoice and add your preferred name and address (and VAT number).
