New Editions supports the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS’s) Office of Accessible Systems & Technology’s (OAST’s) Trusted Tester Certification program. The purpose of this program is to increase the capability and capacity of the DHS workforce and other federal agencies to support the Federal government’s mission to comply with Section 508. Under this contract, our Senior Section 508 Trusted Testers deliver rigorous, instructor-led courses to Section 508 testers on a formalized website and applications testing methodology, known as the DHS Section 508 Compliance Test Process for Applications. DHS then provides certification to those who pass.
New Editions assisted OAST in the development of this harmonized testing process. We also provide technical and subject matter support to 508 testers for both the instructor-led and the online version of the courses hosted by OAST.
