Become a Certified Professional for Usability and User Experience – Foundation Level (CPUX-F): learn the role of a usability engineer in all phases of a software development project.


This three-day training course provides the theoretical foundations for ISO 9241 usability engineering and its core methods and best practices for user-centered design of interactive applications. You will be equipped to take on the role of a usability engineer in all phases of a software development project, from requirements analysis, through specification and prototyping, to evaluation by testing.

After the workshop you can optionally obtain the CPUX-F (UXQB® Certified Professional for Usability and User Experience – Foundation Level) certificate. The exam takes place on the afternoon of the third day of the workshop and lasts about 75 minutes.


To ensure that you are optimally prepared for the role of a usability engineer and to pass the certification exam, our usability engineering training consists of the following modules:

  • Module 1 – Basic terms and concepts
    Introduction to training and usability; principles of human-centered design according to ISO 9241-210.
  • Module 2 – Understanding and specifying usage context
    Mutual dependencies of human-centered activities according to ISO 9241-210; understand and specifying usage context.
  • Module 3 – Specifying user requirements
    Types of requirements; extracting requirements from the usage context; deriving, formulating and structuring user requirements.
  • Module 4 – Developing design solutions 1: usability principles and guidelines
    Important design concepts; dialog principles and heuristics; guidelines, standards and design patterns.
  • Module 5 – Developing design solutions 2: specifying the interaction
    Information architecture; components of interaction design; task modeling.
  • Module 6 – Design evaluation: usability test
    Preparation and execution of a usability test; interpretation, documentation and communication of usability test results.
  • Module 7 – Design evaluation 2: other evaluation methods
    Evaluation of user interfaces; preparation and execution of a user survey.
  • Module 8 – Process management and use of methods
    Roles and responsibilities of usability professionals; mutual dependencies between the activities of human-centered design.
  • Module 9 – UE Management
    Necessity and reasoning for usability; usability in software development projects; integration into process models (Scrum, V-Model); usability as a corporate strategy; usability versus requirements engineering.
