Anna Mʻ ㊙️ @Unuhinuii
A1 nearly every other job has some certifications to prove you master the skill - whether it's about architevture, medicine, or even childcare. Why would accessibility be different? At least the cert should cover the basics, even if everyone will have specific skills #AXSChat

Eventida @eventida
#AXSChat A1. 1/4 Accessibility certification is something our CEO @lisiwisi has thought a lot about. Her short answer is yes and no - it depends on variables. Long answers next.
Neil Milliken @NeilMilliken
@RoseMusachio Great to see you here for #AXSChat Rosemary happy New Year
Eventida @eventida
#AXSChat A1. 2/4 No answer: Industry-specific certification should have accessibility elements built in. In other words, the associations and industries commit. It also reduces complication of dividing up certifications for different types of professionals.
Eventida @eventida
#AXSChat A1. 3/4 Yes answer for individuals: there are some basics that are common to all industries - caption videos, image descriptions, etc. So there is value in having a basic accessibility certification for individuals.
Eventida @eventida
#AXSChat A1. 4/4 Yes answer for organizations and companies: having a corporation, product, website or app certified as accessible would have value. It would make it easy to maintain a database of accessible services and products - software apps for example.
Dean Frank Reynolds ☠️♿ @DeanFReynolds
A1 I think certifications could help raise the overall standard of assessments and help spread the message to more and more people. However, a certificate is only as good as the person using it - the real experts (Disabled People!) need to be at the forefront. #axschat

2. Yes, industries must be certified to gain clout, importance, increased income, and more opportunities. #AXSChat 10:28 AM - 15 Jan 2019
Neil Milliken @NeilMilliken
@abrightclearweb Experience counts for a lot, however lots of new organisations are wanting to engage people with skills and time in service doesn't always equal competence that's why certifications are useful for #accessibility #AXSChat
Eventida @eventida
@AXSChat A2. Yes, we can. As a result of the #inclusion movement, there are whole companies emerging dedicated solely to supporting "The New Majority" - I envision we will be seeing many segments within that emerging #industry including #accessibility. #AXSchat
Museums DCN @museumDCN
@AXSChat A1) Its beneficial in any sector to have an indication of key skills and knowledge at a particular level. However, for inclusion for all sectors. Its important to assure that certifications and CPD are not prohibitively expensive, inclusive and meaningful. #AXSChat

@MathnSkating Why should you make your business accessible? Because it's the right thing to do! Need another reason? More customers = more business. Still need another reason? Lawsuits cost more than being accessible in the first place. #AXSChat https://t.co/LIruBMsLaW
