The UXQB advanced level certificate „Certified Professional for Usability and User Experience – User Requirements Engineering“ (CPUX-UR) attests the holder in-depth and practical knowledge.
Within the following main areas:
- Use context analysis
- Development of user requirements
- Application and implementation of these competencies as well as of methods such as contextual interviews and participant observations
According to the advanced level, successful completion of the CPUX-F certification exam is required. In contrast to the foundation level exam, advanced level exams consist of a theoretical and a practical part, in which acquired knowledge is applied and demonstrated in a practice based use case.
The theory part of the exam consists of an open-ended set of questions, with available time of 90 minutes.
The practice part of the CPUX-UR certification exam comprises an observation of a contextual interview, to thereby develop a use context description. Consecutively, this needs to be analysed regarding its derivable user requirements.
As preparation for the exam, recognised training providers offer specialised advanced level trainings. While such trainings are helpful, they are not mandatory. Of great help for the exam preparation is the CPUX-UR curriculum provided by the UXQB. Further English translations for CPUX-UR will be coming up in the UXQB documents section.
