Specifically, the seminar covers the following content, which is taught and consolidated through exercises and examples:

Practical and successful preparation for CPUX-F certification

The theoretical knowledge is taught through many practical exercises as well as sample exam questions and a mock exam including discussion. Our certified lecturers have many years of practical experience as UX consultants and will answer all your questions.

Certificate of attendance and CPUX-F certificate

If you complete the course in full, you will receive a certificate of attendance documenting the content of the course and the knowledge you have acquired. As an official training provider, we have structured the seminar in such a way that it is ideal preparation for the “UXQB® Certified Professional for Usability and User Experience – Foundation Level (CPUX-F)” certification exam. If you would like to take the certification exam after the seminar, you can choose a suitable date and exam location from the certification provider Certible or ISQI and register for the exam yourself. Alternatively, you can simply let us organize the exam for you. The certificate certifies that the certificate holder is familiar with the basic terms and concepts from the field of usability and user experience and is acquired through a 90-minute written exam with multiple-choice questions.

Target group

The seminar is aimed at all those involved in the user- and human-centered development of physical (e.g. devices, appliances, machines) or digital (e.g. software, apps) products. No prior knowledge is required to participate.
