Hi Reinhard, part of the Trusted Tester certification is to test a site with known accessibility errors and have the tester complete an activity to properly locate and identify the errors with the correct tests. For a developer activity an exercise could be to remediate accessiblity issues.

Subject: [WebAIM] objective testing for applicants

I am currently helping Makpar fill a couple of accessibility roles. As part of this process, they would like to have the applicants complete a base knowledge set test to help their decision process. Do you have any good ideas on where they could get or look for a tool that will give them a good understanding if their applicants truly understand Web accessibility? Do you think these types of tools truly help locate qualified individuals? Thank you very much for your help with this question and the previous guidance on how to locate qualified applicants.
