Face-to-Face Trainings

  • The High Tech Center Training Unit of the California Community College (CCC) system, offers face-to-face trainings--usually in Cupertino--on a variety of accessibility topics.  The trainings are free to attend and range from 1-3 days in length. While first priority for attending these trainings is given to CCC staff and faculty, CSU staff and faculty are welcome to attend if space is available.
