On December 18 to 20, 2018, the New York City UXPA in association with the International UXQB presented a professional 3-day User Experience (UX) certification program covering user experience terms and methods. The course was delivered by Rolf Molich and independently assessed by iSQI. The course took place in New York City, hosted at Goldman Sachs.
Nineteen people took the full two-day course, 27 people participated in the half-day crash course and 28 people took the certification test. Twenty-four of 28 people passed the certification test.
In their written feedback, students unanimously agreed that the course was worth their time. They also valued the exercises, which took up almost 50% of the time for the course, and the frequent quiz questions, which helped them check their understanding of the UX concepts and methods presented in the course.
For upcoming courses in the United States and other countries check out our calendar with all international courses.

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 http://uxqb.org/en/documents/.
