Amen to that. It would help greatly if CMS documentation made the
employer aware of the need to offer such additional training. I did ask
about the accessibility of the CMS output and it was obvious that
management believe that since the underlying CMS is SENDA compliant the
output will be too.
But I suppose that it wouldn't be in the CMS provider's interest to do
so because it might stop prospective purchasers/users from choosing it
("We don't want that one: we'd have to do lots of extra training.").

Or "... can be found by clicking here" (just spotted one of those; must
go and rewrite it).
