Get ready to better serve Deaf students!

The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes is excited to announce the opening of registration for the Spring cohort of our popular free Accessibility Practices Certificate for Deaf Students. Participants will be able to evaluate current practices, improve existing practices, and establish new ones using a systems lens and an equity framework.


The APC program offers a structured experience along a learning pathway. From one entry point, learners can:

  • Access all certificate requirements: Learning modules are bundled for convenience. Track your progress along the pathway.
  • Structured learning: Learning modules are organized in a logical progression to ensure a solid foundation before moving on to more advanced topics.
  • Seamless progression: Upon completing a module, you will be automatically directed to the next one, keeping you focused on your learning journey.



APC program requires the completion of 5 LEVELS of learning: 

  • Levels 1-4 comprise five modules each (approximately 1 hour of learning for each module).
  • Earn badges as you complete each level! Badges are shareable on your digital platforms.


Levels 1-4:

  • Level 1: Fundamentals
  • Level 2: Accommodations Awareness
  • Level 3: Intermediate Accommodations
  • Level 4: Electives - Choose 5 electives that align with your specific interests.

Level 5: Putting It All Together

  • Level 5: Implementation Course - This facilitated online class (15 hours) will help you apply your acquired knowledge to real-world scenarios.
