WEBINAR

CPUX: A Serious European Attempt at 

Certifying People Who are Interested in UX


Let's talk about UX certification. Rolf Molich is a witty, "UX-famous" usability expert who's worked with Jakob Nielsen. Now he wants to teach us about CPUX, a UX certification program that's taken off in Europe.

With more than 3.000 people certified since its launch in 2014 and about 30 independent, recognized training providers, CPUX is a successful European UX certification program driven by volunteers. Could it be successful here? 

This presentation will tell you what you should demand of a serious and useful UX certification program. You will learn what CPUX teaches and see sample certification questions. The presentation will openly discuss CPUX’s successes, the challenges we are facing, and what our students are saying.



Our Speaker



Rolf Molich is vice president of the UXQB, which develops and maintains the CPUX-certification. He also owns and manages DialogDesign, a tiny Danish usability consultancy.

Rolf has worked with usability since 1984. Before that he worked as a successful software engineer.


Rolf is the co-inventor of the heuristic evaluation method (with Jakob Nielsen).


In 2014, Rolf received the UXPA Lifetime Achievement Award from the User Experience Professionals Association for his persistent work on the Comparative Usability Evaluation project, which has shed light upon how practitioners do usability testing in the real world.

Rolf not only talks about usability – he also attempts to practice it in his talks and workshops. He is particularly proud of the fact that his users – 250 students at the University of Copenhagen – named him ”Teacher of the Year” in 2014 for his usable and sometimes even humorous teaching style.

Policies

All registration activities are handled by our volunteers. Please be advised that on the day of the event, we will do our best to manage transfers and late requests, but our primary focus will be on day-of-event logistics.

Tickets can be transferred by sending a request to RSVP@nycuxpa.org up until 48 hours before the event opening. Transfer requests received after this period may not be received or processed. Transferees will please bring the transferrer's registration confirmation in printed or digital form as backup.

If the event sells out early, a waitlist may be set up and managed on a discretionary basis. We will do our best to keep waitlisters informed about the status of available seating, but waitlisters who haven't heard anything by noon the day of the event can assume there has been no change in status.
