Hi all,

Wondering if there are any certifications available for web accessibility
(to test a person's knowledge, not the certifications that declare a
website accessible). I have the one from the University of Southern Maine
available through Easi that is general IT accessibility (web a11y is just 1
of 5 components). But wondering if there are any others I should be aware
of. Not looking for just a training to take. Looking for an actual
credential-type certification.

Thanks,
Mickey

I believe IAAP (International Association of Accessibility Professionals) is working on to offer something. No idea when though.
