Re: IAAP Certification Update

Extensive work has been done within the Professional Development committee
to define roles and competencies within the accessibility profession. Kathy
Wahlbin has been leading that committee and has done an excellent job
there. I see that a brief summary is posted here
http://www.accessibilityassociation.org/content.asp?contentid7 but I can
say that there has been more work done than is currently represented on
that page, so there is an opportunity for the IAAP to release more
information there. I'm not the head of that committee, so I will have to
defer to Kathy on that one.

I will say, though, that the certification exam topics flow from the roles
and competencies identified in the Professional Development committee.
