What is the difference between the ADA Compliance Course and the WCAG Course and WordPress Course?

The ADA Compliance Course is specifically designed to help website owners follow best practices for ADA Compliance and prevent litigation. The WCAG Course helps anyone learn and understand the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). The WordPress Accessibility addresses accessibility specific to WordPress websites.

All courses are excellent educational resources but they are different from one another in material and scope.

Think of the WCAG Course as helping anyone understand web accessibility (and digital accessibility principles).

The ADA Compliance Course is best viewed as training to help any team immediately take action and improve accessibility of a website in furtherance of ADA compliance and stopping lawsuits and demand letters.

The WordPress Accessibility Course will help you understand accessibility in terms of how to build a website and make adjustments in settings and composure with WordPress websites.

All three are standalone training, but none of them are replacements for one another.

Who is the ADA Compliance Course for?

The ADA Compliance Course is for organization who wants to follow best practices for ADA compliance. Accordingly, this course will help you prevent “ADA website” litigation for websites.  This course will help any size organization – from a sole proprietor to a large corporation:

  • Individuals
  • Small businesses
  • Governments
  • Web design agencies
  • Web development agencies
  • Non-profits
  • Associations
  • Corporations

This course is designed so that you can give it to your web teams (e.g., developer, content manager, designer, contractor, etc.) as an SOP or step-by-step instructions.

Who is the creator of the ADA Compliance Course?

Kris Rivenburgh created the ADA Compliance Course.

Kris is an attorney and the author of The ADA Book. Kris is also the founder of Accessible.org.

Kris Rivenburgh has researched and written about digital accessibility and ADA compliance for five years. Kris’s work has been cited by Verizon.com, Yahoo Small Business, MN.gov (Minnesota), Syr.edu (Syracuse), and Illinois.edu.

Kris’s ADA compliance and website accessibility guides have also been published in Bloomberg Law and Kris was quoted by The Economist.

Kris has worked with numerous entities – from small businesses and non-profits to large corporations to provide affordable accessibility services including WCAG 2.1 AA audits, PDF remediation, user testing, and custom accessibility statements.

How long is the ADA Compliance Course?

Reading through the course and watching the videos will take approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes.

There are 28 lessons in the course.

Are code examples provided?

Yes, code examples are used throughout the course.

Examples include code with and without ARIA.

Is this course comprised of manual-only remediation instruction?

Yes, we only provide instructions for the genuine, manual remediation or fixing of accessibility issues.

At no point in this course are there instructions for installing an app plugin, widget, overlay, toolbar, software, etc.

This is because these “solutions” do not work.

Automated “solutions” do not make your website accessible or ADA compliant.

How does the ADA Compliance Course work?

Once you complete checkout, you will register for a course and have a login.

After this, you or a team member can immediately begin working through the lessons.

Will the ADA Compliance Course make my website WCAG 2.1 AA conformant?

No, this course only covers the most commonly claimed accessibility issues in litigation.

However, the accessibility issues covered in this course are all found in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

Remediating these issues will likely enable you to make a genuine case that your website provides meaningful access, which is the actual legal standard.

The WCAG Course works as the perfect complement to the ADA Compliance Course. Once you finish the ADA Compliance Course, we recommend picking up with the remaining success criteria found in WCAG 2.1 AA as explained in the WCAG Course.

Does this course provide legal advice?

No.  This course provides general, practical information to significantly reduce any entity’s exposure to website accessibility litigation.

Additionally, no support provided will offer legal advice in any way, shape, or form.  We always recommend you contact an attorney for any legal matters.

What are the cheatsheets?

The cheatsheets are downloadable PDFs that distill the course content down to the essentials.

These cheatsheets provide a quick map to keep your team on track and moving through what needs to be done.

Your team will have:

  • to-do checklists
  • prioritization of issues
  • quick issue summaries
  • role assignments

Sales Questions

Why are there different prices for the course?

The $299 price is for small businesses with 1-5 people using the course

The $599 price is for medium-sized organizations with 6-10 people using the course.

The material remains the exact same, it’s only the number of people that have access that determines the higher price.

For example, Corporation C has a large digital team with nine people. They would pay more vs. a Shopify owner with only a developer.
