What’s the Point of UX Certification?
Recently at work we’ve been discussing the merits of various UCD training courses, with particular focus on those offering UX certification.
Our UX team is in its infancy, and still relatively small, but we’ve managed to establish a solid base of enthusiastic advocates in various areas of the business, eager to learn more and develop new skills.
Because of this, we’re in the process of defining a new training syllabus, to help support the wider team as much as possible. In order to gain more sponsorship, recognition and legitimacy for our advocates, within their respective LOB, a certified course could be a useful standard to introduce.
“The issue we keep returning to is – how relevant would a certified course actually be? Would it provide significant ROI?”
Paul Seys wrote this very interesting article about whether UX certification is necessary for practitioners and discusses the benefits and ROI of UX certification.
