Prepare for WAS Exam

Utilize the following content to help prepare for the Web Accessibility Specialist (WAS) Exam.*

The WAS credential represents an ability to express technical proficiency for someone with at least an intermediate level of expertise. This exam is not intended for beginners or those without regular hands-on experience in writing, remediating, or identifying accessibility issues in code. Knowledge of HTML programming alone will not provide the background necessary to successfully achieve the WAS credential. Hands-on experience and knowledge of programmatic code elements, WCAG 2.0 standards, and contextual implications for end users of assistive technology are all required. Please review the 
WAS Content Outline and WAS Body of Knowledge to ensure that your experience matches these requirements before registering for this exam.

  *Please note that the purchase and/or use of any exam preparation course or product does not guarantee successful completion of the exam.
