As Seen/Heard On

“I was skeptical because of all of the overpriced fluff content courses out there, but yours came highly recommended — and it was worth it. It will be a way to increase my value as a web developer/designer.
I can’t tell you how much the accessibility conversation has ended the design wars with clients. I’m still a newbie at it, but just understanding how it works has upped my game when it comes to asserting myself in my design decisions. And now they listen!”
“I can’t say enough good things about Colleen’s accessibility training. Before I took this course, I already knew quite a bit about website accessibility best practices, and I was hoping to learn a few useful tidbits. By the end of Module 1, I had already added important information to my skillset that I was able to put into practice immediately.
The course was well organized, thorough but not overwhelming, and extremely informative. Everyone who builds websites should sign up for this training!”
“Colleen knows accessibility. I wanted to make sure I was up with the latest knowledge, tips and tools. I could have spent hours pulling together my own information or I could use Colleen’s course as a great refresher and resource guide.
It was totally worth it on the time-saving alone. The resource material was an added bonus.”
