We have updated the CPUX-F Curriculum

The previous version of the CPUX-F Curriculum has remained unchanged for a little over three years. Over the last 18 months, the UXQB’s CPUX-F working group has developed an improved, up-to-date version of the curriculum, based on the analysis of thousands of certifications, feedback from international training providers and insight from industry experts.

Version 4.01 of the CPUX-F curriculum introduces seven new terms and definitions – including “human-centred quality”, “ethical design”, “sustainable design” and “interaction principles” (which replaces the outgoing “dialogue principles”, following the recent update to ISO 9241-110) – along with significant updates and extensions to many existing terms and lots of new examples to help bring the curriculum to life. To keep the curriculum to a manageable size, twelve terms – considered by the working group to be less important than the additions – have been removed.

A full list of the changes is available in “Appendix A – Important changes to this document” of the CPUX-F curriculum v4.01. The publicly available set of 40 test questions has also been revised to reflect the content of the new curriculum.

Delegates are able to study and take the CPUX-F exam for either version 3.16 or version 4.01 of the curriculum (at the discretion of the training provider) up to 31 March 2023, at which point all CPUX-F examinations will be based on version 4.01.

The CPUX-F curriculum v4.01, along with the updated test questions, has now been published and can be found in the documents section of the UXQB website.
