Training & Certification

As demonstrated by multiple surveys, a critical barrier to implementing ICT accessibility is the lack of technical skills among professionals designing, managing or overseeing digital products and contents and services. In 2016, to further its mission, G3ict Joined forces with the International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP), the world’s leading provider of professional resources and certification in ICT accessibility, so that both organizations may mutually benefit from synergies with their respective programs around the world.

IAAP, which now operates as a division of G3ict, is a membership-based organization for individuals and organizations that are focused on accessibility or are in the process of building their accessibility skills and strategies. Its objective is to help accessibility professionals develop and advance their careers and to help organizations integrate accessibility into their products and infrastructure. IAAP provides a place for accessibility professionals around the world to gather, share experiences and enrich their knowledge of accessibility.

IAAP offers multiple benefits to its members including peer-to-peer exchanges, professional development and training resources, technical webinars, and offers internationally recognized certifications in accessibility: Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies and the Web Accessibility Specialist Certificate, and to be launched mid-2018 the Procurement Accessibility Specialist Certificate.

IAAP is expanding around the world with four international chapters launched in 2017 in the Nordic countries, the United Kingdom, India and Mexico. Its membership is increasingly steadily both individual members and organization members. It counted more than 1,560 members involved in ICT accessibility in 42 countries as of September 2018. All interested professionals are encouraged to join.
