Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies

The CPACC is a foundational professional credential through the International Association of Accessibility Professionals. The certification represents the ability to apply broad, cross-disciplinary conceptual knowledge about disabilities and accessibility.

At Princeton, we have created a welcoming and innovative program to certify staff in any role, whether technical or non-technical. To date, over 120 staff have earned certifications. We believe that everyone can benefit from and apply accessibility knowledge in their work, and we especially encourage those who:

  • Are responsible for supporting people with disabilities
  • Want to create more inclusive experiences
  • Create content
  • Create or manage IT
  • Organize and host meetings
  • Work with students

OIT's training program is cohort-based and is offered in the summer. It includes an online course, three in-person training classes, study sessions, and the exam. Participants should expect to spend 50 hours in the preparation program. The thoroughness of the preparation gives Princeton a high pass rate. Those who do well in the course and practice exam have their certification fees met by the University.

Course topics include:

  • Disabilities, challenges and assistive technologies
  • Etiquette
  • Accommodations
  • Universal design
  • Standards and laws
  • Integrating digital accessibility in the organization

CPACC classes are open only to members of the University community. Contact us to ask about upcoming cohorts.
