Only staff who have been asked by their program head or supervisor to be an author or editor on one of our websites should take the training. See the definition of author and editor roles.

  • confirming that you have completed the website editing course and reviewed the writing for the web pages
  • attach a screenshot of the writing for the web quiz that shows your results. If you fail, please retake the quiz and screenshot your results once you've passed
  • providing the URL(s) of the page(s) you wish to edit

PHSA Communications will verify you’ve completed the course, confirm the access request with your supervisor or the content owner of the page and then give you editing rights.

If you have already taken training in the past, but require access to a new section or new website, email to let us know. Please make sure your training is within the last year. 

Content owners

Content owners may choose not to edit any of our websites directly. However, we recommend that they also attend training so that they can understand the capabilities and limitations of the website platform (SharePoint 2013). 

Additionally, they will gain knowledge about:

  • the appropriate ways to present information which is consistent with PHSA guidelines 
  • best practices for presenting content online in a web-friendly and user-centred manner. This will enable them to provide appropriate guidance to their editors.
