Access Academy

In response to COVID-19 and the challenges of distance learning and teaching, we launched a series of #AtHomeWithAPH webinars in April 2020 which provided the training and education needed to get the most out of APH products and services. These webinars were so needed and so popular, that we have decided to offer them on a permanent basis. These ongoing webinars have been renamed Access Academy.
