Have you been directed to make a website or mobile app 'accessible', but have no idea where to begin? Or perhaps you know a bit about accessibility and really want to immerse yourself in the field, but you can't afford to have you or your team out for multiple days in an onsite class. With rich content available in an easy to use, on-demand format, TPG Tutor is here to help your organization tackle the field of accessibility in a scalable and responsive manner.

Embrace Simple, Cost-Effective Accessibility Training with TPG Tutor

Whether you're new to accessibility or a seasoned veteran, it's valuable to have reliable, structured training materials that you can access at your own pace. TPG Tutor is an affordable and effective means to train yourself or your staff in accessibility.

Purchase one course, two courses, or the entire library of courses for as many or as few users as you require. TPG Tutor is self-paced, easy to use, and available on the Arc platform, or optionally priced for use in your own LMS.

For more information, email accessibility@flying-blind.com or call +1 (216) 381-8107 ☎ today. We're standing by to assist. Feel free to check out the YouTube video below for additional details!
