Section 508 training begins

The General Services Administration has begun offering training programs about how agencies can make sure they are complying with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments.

The law, for which the federal Access Board is currently finishing rules, requires that agencies assure that government systems are accessible to disabled users.

The first course, a three-hour class at GSA headquarters in Washington that covered designing accessible Web sites, was held last week. Another is scheduled for Wednesday. GSA is also broadcasting its programs and plans webcasts, too.
