When some think about making content accessible, they may feel intimidated.  Some wonder what accessibility is, where to start, or where to find information. A good place to start to learn about accessibility is with training.  CSULB offers website and document remediation training to help CSULB websites and documents become more accessible to all users.   

Website Training

There are three initial required trainings for web administrators and web developers:
