The International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP) is offering a certificate in accessibility with exams for UK candidates available in London on 22 June and 7 July.
The IAAP Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC) credential is IAAP’s foundation certificate, covering the practical application of cross-disciplinary knowledge about disabilities, accessibility, universal design, aaccessibility-related standards, laws, and management strategies.
The CPACC, says the IAAP, is the ideal credential for those who manage and support accessibility, but who may not personally design, implement, or evaluate the technical details of accessible solutions.
“This certification is a great step forward in helping professionalise the accessibility profession. It’ll provide accessibility professionals with a credential as evidence of their commitment and competence, increasing quality and consistency of work performed and will help build a common language, understanding and community across accessibility professionals,”. says Paul Smyth, Head of IT Accessibility at Barclys.
“As accessibility becomes increasingly important for organisations, employers will have a means to assess the accessibility competence of prospective employees too. A big thanks to AbilityNet, Lloyds and BATA who have all helped to bring this certification to the UK and promote its value.”
