I'm currently watching the web dev cafe online. There is some discussion
about certifying web developers with their accessibility skills. I might
be interested in certification. One suggestion I have is to Mike
Elledge. Perhaps he could work with the UPA to develop certification in
web accessibility on the national level (or even global). The
certification would be like other professional certs where you sit for
an exam through the UPA, show that you have a certain minimum level of
experience and education, and then stay certified with CEU credits.
Attending UPA meetings and the MSU Usability Day events would count for
CEU credits through the UPA. MSU could offer a fee-based exam prep
course (credit or non-credit) and get it endorsed by the UPA. Does
anything like this exist already?
