    CAT Program Goals

    • Train, Certify, and prepare people with disabilities for competitive employment in tech. 
    • Create new Employment Opportunities using non-traditional job readiness pathways 
    • Increase successful case closures, employee retention, and reduce overall VR/RSA costs. 

    Current Certification Problems and gaps

    1. Exclusively Knowledge-Based
      Curriculum focuses on concepts-Not the skill development for required job functions 
    2. No Functional Skill or Ability Exam
      Certification earned without demonstrating functional accessibility testing skill/ability 
    3. No Live Lectures, Coaching, Mentorship, or Support
      PWD can struggle with remote learning, but excel with coaching-oriented live environments. 
    4. Not A comprehensive Employment Opportunity
      Does not capture both private and public sector employment opportunities
