"Userfocus is delighted to offer a pro bono place on our training courses," said David Travis, Director of Userfocus ltd. "Non-profits need to improve the usability and accessibility of their web sites just like other organizations. But they often struggle to fund the training costs of their developers and designers. Now their staff can attend the same high quality usability training courses as large corporates."
