Registrations are filling up fast for our last intake for 2012 of The Professional Certificate in Web Accessibility, running 8 October – 16 November. With the first deadline of the Web Accessibility National Transition Strategy (NTS) at the end of the year, this six-week online course offers web professionals working for Government the chance to build their accessibility expertise in time to meet compliance.

“In implementing the NTS, we are often required to play many roles and this course really helps put it all in perspective,” said an Australian Government Accessibility Policy Officer and past student.

The Certificate, a joint initiative with the University of South Australia, is designed to equip web developers, designers, testers and web auditors a practical knowledge of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 in time for the new year.  

Students gain hands-on experience through graded, practical assessments and access to forums, where they can connect and share with other course attendees and lecturers.

The Assistant Director of the Australian Government Web and Intranet Section said, “The opportunity to share experiences with other students and understand how they are resolving accessibility issues was invaluable… I can now say that my web accessibility knowledge has been independently assessed by respected academic and industry specialists.”

Registrations close 25 September. For more information or to register, visit the Professional Certificate in Web Accessibility page on the University of South Australia website.
