Webinar “CPUX: A Serious, European Attempt at Certifying People who are Interested in UX” (June 26, 12:00pm EDT, 18:00h CET)

With more than 3.000 people certified since its launch in 2014 and about 30 independent recognized training providers across Europe, CPUX (Certified Professional for Usability and User Experience) is a successful European UX certification program driven by volunteers. This webinar, which is sponsored by the New York City User Experience Association (NYC UXPA), 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.

About the presenter:
Rolf Molich is vice president of the UXQB, the organization 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.

First CPUX-F Certification test in the United States

As part of UXPA Boston’s 17th Annual User Experience Conference, Rolf Molich will present a talk entitled “CPUX – A Serious (and Usable?) European Attempt at Certifying UX Professionals” on May 10. On May 11, a CPUX-F crash-course will be held, followed by the first public CPUX-F certification in the US.

New CPUX-F Curriculum published (Version 3.15, 23 March 2018)

The UXQB has released a revised CPUX-F Curriculum on Friday 23 March 2018 together with a new set of public test questions. The curriculum and the test questions are available in German and English as before. At this time the UXQB has no definite plans for updating the French and the Russian curricula. In the period from 1 April to 31 May, you will have the choice of getting certified using test questions that correspond to the old curriculum or to the revised curriculum. Please state your choice when you order the certification from the accredited certification provider of your choice. From 1 June 2018, all CPUX-F certification tests will be based on the revised CPUX-F Curriculum. To help you get a quick overview of the major changes to the curriculum, we have included a list of changes in the back of the curriculum. The curriculum now also includes an index. Both documents are available for download at
