What is CPUX and CPUX-UT?

CPUX (Certified Professional for Usability and User Experience) is an international standard for qualification of individuals who are professionally involved in developing or ensuring the usability or user experience of products.

CPUX-UT (CPUX-Usability Testing) is an advanced module which focuses on the preparation, moderation, and analysis of usability tests and builds on the foundational CPUX-F course. 50% of the course will be spent on practical exercises like writing test tasks, moderation, and communicating usability test results.
