Free Access to our online IAAP CPACC Exam Prep Course on Deque University

Have you been thinking about an IAAP Certification exam, but you're not sure if you're really prepared?
In honor of the new partnership between the IAAP and G3ict's M-Enabling conference, we're offering attendees free access to our IAAP CPACC Exam Prep Course on Deque University!

What is the IAAP's CPACC exam?

The CPACC exam (short for "Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies") is a digital accessibility certification exam administered by the International Association of Accessibility Professionals. The CPACC certification represents "broad, cross-disciplinary conceptual knowledge about 1) disabilities, 2) accessibility and universal design, and 3) accessibility-related standards, laws, and management strategies," according to the IAAP. Visit the IAAP website to learn more about the CPACC exam and whether or not it seems like a good fit for you.

What is Deque University's CPACC Exam Prep Course?

The IAAP CPACC Certification Preparation Course is one of Deque University's online, self-paced accessibility courses and covers all topics on the exam, in detail, with self-test quizzes and links to external resources for further study. The course takes about 5 hours to complete. Deque is one of the IAAP's Approved Certification Preparation Providers so you can be sure that the prep course will be time well spent.

Deque University Scholarships

Back in 2016, we decided to offer our Deque University online, self-paced courses to people with disabilities for free. There aren't enough digital accessibility experts in the world, and people with disabilities have an understanding of how accessibility barriers can impact lives that people without disabilities often struggle to understand.

If you have a disability, and you're interested in becoming an accessibility expert, Deque University is a great place to start. The application and additional information is available at dequeuniversity.com/scholarships. The application is very simple; and after submission and approval, you will have access to Deque University's online curriculum for one year.
