I can provide a bit more insight to the Professional Certificate of Web Accessibility (PCWA) since I am an Alumni for the course, and I can see there are a few other Alumni in this thread. The course spans over 6 weeks and has three major assignments, with several forum discussions in-between for the students from different backgrounds to come together and discuss web accessibility. The Assignments will cover using screen readers, ATAG 2.0, captioning videos and finally a group assignment for auditing a website for accessibility issues against WCAG 2.0 and then resolving the issues by creating an accessible version of the website.

Due to the variety of students that take the course (Developers, Designers, Content Authors, Accessibility Specialists, Usability Specialists, Web Managers), the discussions in the forms are interesting and are engaged by the very knowledgeable lecturers and other accessibility specialists taking the course. I do recommend it, as it can certainly give a whole picture of what web accessibility is truly about and give you the practical skills for improving web accessibility.

The next course intake is in March 2017 and you can find out more information about the PCWA here<http://www.mediaaccess.org.au/digitalaccessibilityservices/services/education-and-training/pcwa/>.
