Information Accessibility Design & Policy (IADP) Professional Development Certificate Available Online at University of Illinois Urbana Champaign

Three important questions for your organization:

1. Is your websites and instructional materials designed to be accessible?

2. Are you aware of state and federal requirements for insuring equal access by people with disabilities to you programs an services?

3. Are your instructors and digital development teams prepared to minimize barriers and maximize access to digital information for your clients?

This spring, the College of Applied Health Sciences<http://ahs.illinois.edu/> at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will launch a fully-online, three-course professional certificate in Information Accessibility Design and Policy (IADP.) From hands-on developers to compliance officers, anyone responsible for making web content findable, useable and accessible for persons with disabilities can learn how to meet accessibility mandates and exceed end-user expectations. This program is the only one if its kind in the U.S. and one of only of a few in the world.
