As a professional membership organization, RESNA is dedicated to offering assistive technology professionals the tools and continuing education they need to be successful. Professional development includes news and information about the profession and new technologies, continuing education opportunities such as courses, classes and webinars, position papers outlining best practices, certification, and helpful links.

With RESNA membership, professionals can also advance their careers through networking, peer-to-peer information sharing, and free access to Assistive Technology Journal , the organization's scientific research journal.

If you have any suggestions for professional development activities you would like to see, please contact the RESNA office.

ESNA offers two certifications to recognize assistive technology (AT) service providers who have met a national standard of job-based knowledge and experience. By promoting the professionalism of AT service providers, RESNA's certifications ultimately serve to protect consumers of AT solutions.
