Frequently Asked Questions

If the course doesn't appear in Canvas, you may need to request to be enrolled. Please contact the Accessibility Network if you need to be added to the course. 

Because our training is held once every three weeks, tickets are processed on a weekly basis. Please allow one week for your training invite to be sent after you have provided your Accessibility Compliance Training verification. 

You can submit a ticket requesting training on behalf of someone, however there are a few notes to remember:

  • If you don't upload their Accessibility Compliance Training verification with the original submission, they will need to follow up with that before their ticket is processed. 
  • All communication on the ticket status and updates will only come to the person who is needing training. The original requestor does not receive updates. 

No, you will only need to attend a single AEM training. The first date selected is your preferred training date, followed by second and third choices should we have a training that is full. 

If you received an email asking you to verify your Accessibility Compliance Training, you will need to reply to the email with proof that you have completed the course. The easiest way to do this is to take a screenshot of your scores and included it as an attachment in your reply. You will not be able to attend training until this step is completed.
