A range of criteria and information is used by the Association of Consultants in Access Australia (ACAA) in determining the suitability of candidates for Accredited Membership of the Association. The Accredited Membership Test is designed for use as a tool to assist in this process.
The test assists in assessing a candidate’s ability to practise competently as an Access Consultant. It is an open-book test designed for practitioners who have gained relevant skills and experience in the field of Access Consulting as determined by ACAA.
Prior to applying to upgrade to an Accredited Membership it is suggested to try the sample Practice Accreditation Test.
All applicants for Accredited Membership are required to undertake the test.
How was the test developed?
The test was developed by the ACAA Membership Committee and an external qualified trainer and assessor with more than 30 years experience in this process. The test has been validated via qualified and accredited trainers and assessors under the auspice of a nationally recognised Registered Training Organisation according to nationally recognised guidelines.
The questions and answers to the test have been validated by the ACAA Membership Committee, (consisting of four accredited and experienced access consultants) as well as an independent research specialist and an independent and qualified trainer and assessor with extensive experience in testing validation processes. In addition, the test has been trialled with selected accredited and associate members of ACAA and currently arrangements are in place for all the ACAA Committee of Management members to undertake the test with feedback from this process being considered in ongoing continuous improvement of the accreditation process.
There are currently 3 tests available to ACAA, to allow for any situations where a candidate may need to resit a test if they are unsuccessful on their first attempt. (see further information below)
