Administrators must get access approval from their area manager to maintain editing access to the UAH website. Administrators must also complete Joomla training before access can be granted. Joomla training is currently held over Zoom and takes 2 hours. If you need Joomla access, send a request to webmaster@uah.edu and be sure to CC your area manager. We will then review your request and follow-up with you via email regarding next steps.
