Discussion on: What Can You Learn from Getting Certified in Accessibility? - the CPACC Edition

Many congratulations on your your certification, I've just started down the path of CPACC and WAS.

I've completed the Deque CPACC course and just started the WAS and I will be taking the exams for both later this year.

The breadth of CPACC is huge (and I assume WAS is the same), what hints and tips do you have for learning such a large body of knowledge?

Thank you!

I would say the best thing for me was taking my time. With CPACC, I studied pretty intensively because I had the opportunity to do it on work time, but with WAS I went trough the material in six months or so.

Also, for me writing about the topics I was studying was helping; it helped to clarify some things, and especially when writing blog posts about the themes I was studying, I needed to really understand what I was writing about. So maybe I would say, that if you have anyone who would listen (or read), teach them about the topics you're learning :) And if not, writing (or documenting in any other way which suits you best) for yourself is also a good option.
