QuickStart announces achieving full compliance with ADA Standards of web accessibility.

QuickStart, an IT workforce readiness platform using AI and adaptive learning is among the first IT training companies with a learning management system that has achieved Level AA conformance with the WCAG 2.1 standards and guidelines, making it a perfect example of an educational platform trying to create equal learning opportunities for everyone regardless of their disability status. It includes compliance for disabilities under the ADA standard with the learning platform, courses within and its complete web experience.

People with disabilities such as visual, speech, auditory, cognitive, learning, physical and neurological will now be able to access state of the art AI-powered learning management system. The adaptive learning and multi-modality approach will allow learners to be assessed on their IT skills competencies and then the system will curate a personalized learning certification path which will include IT training self-paced courses, instructor-led training and AI curated micro learning segments.

Businesses will be able to train their entire IT Staff through a single workforce readiness platform. IT training managers or supervisors can build personalized training paths, get access to workforce readiness dashboards and reporting, aligned to business goals to prove ROI for their learning & development (L&D) investment.

This allows organizations to achieve greater efficiency, with higher productivity and through-put. It improves employee satisfaction, reduces turnover costs and increases retention rate. All QuickStart platforms, products and courses adhere to the standards set out in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

“We go to great lengths on innovating and bring the best of the breed IT workforce readiness platform that is ADA compliant so people with disability are not deprived from learning on emerging technologies”, says Ed Sattar, CEO of QuickStart. “If you’re a company that requires for a learning management system to be WACG 2.1 compliant and would like to upskill your employees IT skills via training and certification, we are there for you”, he further added.

The impact of integrating web accessibility in educational platforms provides huge opportunities to the students with disability as well as employers. Official conformance to accessibility standards will make QuickStart a great tool for organizations who follow ADA guidelines.

Measures to support web accessibility at QuickStart includes implementation of formal quality assurance methods, integrating accessibility into procurement practices and customer touchpoints including category pages, product pages, enrollment process, registration, checkout, success page, dashboards, course video player and any other front-end classification. Since the platform contains third party content, it is announced to be not compliant and QuickStart has notified of its efforts to becoming ADA Compliant and receiving a WCAG Certification.
