Mada (Qatar Assistive Technology Center) is offering web developers and digital content managers in Qatar the opportunity to receive professional certification in the area of web accessibility as part of a joint initiative with the University of Southern Australia. 

Participants will receive the essentials needed to achieve compliance with international best practice in accessibility, the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.

This university-accredited online (international) certificate, jointly conducted by W3C member Media Access Australia and the University of South Australia, is a fully assessed six-week program that covers both accessibility principles and techniques.

To encourage greater participation, Mada will fund a second participant for free once an organisation has committed to enrolling one student in the programme. As such, two members of your organization can benefit for the cost of one.

The cost of enrolling one student is QR8,200.

The course begins on 7 October 2013. All participants must register before 24 September 2013. There are 18 seats in total – nine paid and nine free.

The language of instruction is English.

To sign-up, organisations shall sign up one person from the website; and then send Mada their registration details so they can pay for the second person.
