We're big proponents of self-empowerment here at Deque. And we work hard to develop the right tools, training and software to make our goal of digital inclusion an achievable reality. That's why we're so proud of the efforts we've made with Deque University, from granting scholarships to people with disabilities to our work with the International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP).
The IAAP is an organization for people that are heavily invested in making accessibility a reality. The IAAP exists to help subject matter experts and other like-minded individuals incorporate accessibility into their organization's products and infrastructure.
One of the services offered by the IAAP is the Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies Exam. This is IAAP's foundation certification. It covers general knowledge about accessibility across disciplines, including: 1)disabilities, 2)accessibility and universal design, and 3) accessibility related standards, laws, and management strategies. This certification can be of benefit to individuals working in a variety of verticals, from web and other digital technologies to transportation systems and industrial design - anywhere where disability access can be improved.
In order to help advance the mission of the IAAP - and the careers of those in the accessibility industry, we've designed an online prep course on Deque University for the IAAP Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC) Exam.* The self-paced online course is $45 and covers all the material on the exam, plus provides additional resources for further study.
Thanks to this comprehensive online prep course, countless individuals in the accessibility industry have become IAAP CPACC certified, including (thus far) twenty-eight of our employees. The next exam window is October 24-November 11, and applications for the exam are now being accepted.
So if you're in the accessibility industry, this is a very valuable certification to have. Now is the time! Let Deque help empower you on our shared goal - to make the web (and the world) inclusive for everyone.
