Training Requirements

Digital Accessibility Coordinators are responsible for communicating training requirements to faculty and staff in their units and taking coordinator-specific trainings provided by DAS.

Annual Training for Faculty and Staff

Policy Training: All Ohio State faculty, staff and student employees are required to take annual Digital Accessibility Policy training if they acquire, develop or deliver digital information or digital services. All identified faculty and staff must complete this training by December 31, 2020.

Skills Training: Skills Training is required for all Ohio State faculty, staff, and student employees who have a role in the Implement/Upgrade Framework. A Skills Training Curriculum has been developed to provide guidance on the training modules needed to build various types of digital products. All identified faculty, staff, and student employees must complete this training by the due date assigned by their supervising unit.

For both the Digital Accessibility Policy training and the Skills Training, faculty, staff, and student employees who are required to take this training will be notified and the training will be assigned to their transcript in BuckeyeLearn.
