Section 508 Compliant E-learning - Trusted Tester

How do you test e-learning for Section 508 compliance?

As developers ourselves we face that same question. We share the commitment made by the Department of Homeland Security to a common testing approach for accessibility compliance and conformity. Our certified Trusted Testers deliver a code-inspection based test approach for determining e-learning, software, and website conformance to the Section 508 standards. 

Congratulations to our team member Mary Ann who recently achieved her Trusted Tester certification!

  • IT governance by integrating Section 508 into the development and acquisition lifecycle

  • Expedited remediation of nonconformance
