Web Key IT Certificate in Digital Accessibility

Introduction

This certificate level program covers all major aspects of Digital accessibility over 5 one day sessions on consecutive weeks. An organisation that fills all 5 days qualifies for an organisational certificate.  An individual for takes all 5 days qualifies for a personal certificate and, if they are an ACS member, they also gain professional points. Discussions are taking place for this certificate to gain recognition at a tertiary level.

The 5 week course is made up of course modules that are all self-standing so an organisation may buy the whole 5 weeks but send different people to individual days.  For example: technical people to technical days and content people to document days.  This also allows for a day course (or set of days, or a half day) to be offered as a stand-alone course for a client at any time even though that client has not taken up the full 5 week package.

Course outcomes

During the course, participants will prepare a Digital Accessibility Action Plan for their organisation and conduct an initial high level review of the organisation’s digital resources (web & documents) under the guidance and support of WebKeyIT’s accessibility experts.

For organisations that send a team of people, those participants can become an in-house digital accessibility working group.
