Virtual training is provided and consists of a blended 3-hour curriculum delivered live and on-demand that will be completed over a 2-week period. Training topics include information about Hire Autism, the business case for hiring autistic employees, and tracking contacts/outreach attempts using HubSpot.

Ambassadors will also be given the opportunity to enroll in our Autism Employer Training, an optional 3-hour virtual training program that contains information on inclusive job descriptions, interviewing autistic candidates, and best practices for managing, training, and onboarding.
