WebAIM has trained tens of thousands of web developers across the world. Clients include PayPal, IBM, eBay, the Internal Revenue Service, several state governments, and over 100 colleges and universities. WebAIM trainers have presented at hundreds of conferences and meetings around the world and are active in web accessibility standards development.
We at WebAIM understand the seriousness of the situation as the number of cases of COVID-19 are escalating. As of right now, we are still proceeding with our on-site meeting plans with additional measures in place to support the health and safety of our participants. Our cancellation policy allows full refunds or rescheduling to a future training date up to 10 days before the training. Within the 10 day window there will be a $250 fee for canceling or rescheduling. While not anticipated, if significant travel disruptions were to occur on short notice, we would consider all options to ensure our participants are able to participate—either at a different date or perhaps remotely. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns, and we will keep you informed if we believe COVID-19 may impact the meeting plans.
Training times will be from 9am-5pm on Wednesday, June 24th and from 9am-3:30pm on Thursday, June 25th. This leaves time to get to Salt Lake City for an evening flight after approximately 6pm. The training will be held in Room 307 of the Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University.
Registration includes breakfast and lunch on both days. Computers are not provided, but complimentary wireless internet access will be provided. We recommend that participants bring a laptop or tablet.
Pre-training Tour and Dinner
For those that are interested, we will be having pre-conference tour of scenic Logan Canyon on Tuesday afternoon (we'll leave Logan at 3:30pm). We will also hold a pre-training dinner in Logan on Tuesday evening if you would like to join us.
As part of a training registration, you'll have the opportunity to secure exclusive technical assistance time with WebAIM staff at a discounted price. You can purchase either 3 or 5 hours of Training Plus consultation time to be used before or within 4 months of the training date.
The training was a great overview as I am new to this entire realm. I learned a lot and have many follow-ups for my company based on what I learned. The instructors were very knowledgeable, which was helpful as a novice.
