We’re thrilled to say that, as of this year, we’ve hit a milestone: over 200 people will have taken our Certified Practitioner of User Experience (CPUX) courses!
Bunnyfoot were the first UK organisation to run the CPUX course (in association with the UXQB) and it’s turned out to be one of our most popular – showing that the importance of having a team who can implement a user-centred design process (whether it’s for a website, app, service – or anything else!) is becoming more widely recognised.
The CPUX course – which has both a Foundation certification and User Testing certification – is intensive, but well worth it for those who work in UX, or who have involvement with the usability or user experience of their organisation’s products or services.
Which certification is right for me?
The CPUX-Foundation course is a great way for those who are newer to the world of UX to acquire the essential knowledge and skills of established usability testing conventions. This covers usability principles, how to gather and specify user requirements, step-by-step approach to running a usability test – and much more. The Foundation course is required to be eligible to take the more advanced User Testing certification course.
The CPUX-User Testing course takes a deep-dive into multiple aspects of usability testing. Just some of the things trainees learn include: how to recruit participants, how to measure usability, how to analyse results, ethical guidelines for usability tests and the all-important understanding of how to “sell” usability testing (and the results) to colleagues. The course also covers how to decide which usability evaluation methodologies to use in different circumstances, as well as looking at the disadvantages and advantages of each.
Both the Foundation and User Testing course are conducted using real-world examples to make sure trainees gain a thorough and practical understanding of what’s being discussed.
How will I be graded?
Our CPUX courses are independently assessed by the International Usability and User Experience Qualification Board (UXQB).
To gain both the Foundation and User Testing certification, trainees have to pass theory tests that ask several multiple-choice questions – some even have more than one correct answer! Those taking the User Testing course will also have a practical exam, where they’ll be asked to conduct a minimum of three usability test sessions (with participants) and must also submit reports of their findings. This course isn’t for the faint-hearted!
At Bunnyfoot, we’re the UK’s leading CPUX provider and run more than 10 other UX training courses. If you’re interested in taking the CPUX-User Testing Certification, the CPUX-Foundation course or any of our other courses, please get in touch for more information!
