Course overview

In this course, you will learn about the new criteria, receive helpful tips on understanding them, as well as illustrating how WCAG 2.2 impacts you and your customers. There will be an opportunity to pose your questions about WCAG 2.2 to the course trainer.

What you will learn

  • Understand the updated success criteria in WCAG 2.2
  • Understand where the updated success criteria will have the greatest impact
  • Understand how to test your content for compliance with the new WCAG 2.2 success criteria.

Please note:

The course is about digital accessibility. This means websites and apps. For example, the course would not be suitable for someone interested in the laws concerning access to public buildings or workplaces, or similar non-digital aspects of accessibility. 

This course will be delivered by a digital accessibility subject matter expert, not a legal expert. We will not be providing legal advice.
