Course Description

Created in association with the International Usability and UX Qualification Board, this professional 3-day UX certification programme covers usability evaluation methods and theories – in particular, usability testing. It is independently assessed/certified by iSQI.

Bunnyfoot were the pioneers and are now one of the leading providers of the Certified Practitioner of User Experience Course (CPUX) in the United Kingdom.

Please note: To take the CPUX-User Testing course, you must have passed the CPUX-Foundation exam.

What are 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.

You can find more information about CPUX at www.cpux.org
