Advanced Usability Testing & Evaluation Certification (CPUX-UT)



25 27

This event has passed.


User Vision is offering an advanced course for the internationally recognised UX professionals qualification – Certified Professional for Usability and User Experience (CPUX) Usability Testing and Evaluation. This is available to those who have passed the CPUX-Foundation exam.

Our training provides a professional 3-day UX certification programme covering usability evaluation methods and theories – in particular usability testing.  It was created in association with the International Usability and User Experience Qualification Board(this will open in a new window) (UXQB) and, like the Foundation course, there are plenty of hands-on exercises to apply your skills. It is independently assessed/certified by the International Software Quality Institute (iSQI)(this will open in a new window) through a two-part exam covering both theory and practical demonstration.
