Learn how to rapidly turn your design ideas into shareable, testable, interactive prototypes … without writing a line of code with our Axure RP prototyping training!
In this course, we will look both at the principles behind a prototyping approach, as well as the practicalities of building prototypes. We will use Axure RP, a leading prototyping tool, known for its effective combination of power and simplicity.
In this Foundation course our experienced trainer will take you, over the course of 1 day, from opening Axure for the first time through to building a functioning, interactive prototype. The course will include classroom learning, practical exercises, and tips & tricks from our trainers’ years of Axure experience.
If you already know the basics of Axure, or would like to continue your learning after this course, a second day of Advanced Axure training is available. More details are available on the Advanced Axure Course Page.

What to expect on the day
Practical and enjoyable: Throughout the day you and your small group of classmates will get the opportunity to learn from an experienced UX consultant (and Axure practitioner), immediately apply the learning, and get hands-on help as you build your own prototype.
You will receive a print-out of all training materials and course activities. There is no exam in this course but all successful participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the day.
