UXQB Advanced Level CPUX-UT

The UXQB advanced level certificate „Certified Professional for Usability and User Experience – Usability Testing and Evaluation“ (CPUX-UT) attests the holder in-depth and practical knowledge.

Within the following main areas:

  • Terms and concepts in testing and evaluating user interfaces

  • Planning, conducting, and documenting usability tests, expert reviews, and user surveys (quantitative and qualitative)

In contrast to the UXQB CPUX 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.

Exam Format

You obtain the CPUX-UT certificate by passing a theoretical and a practical certification test.

  1. The theoretical test is proctored and consists of 40 multiple choice questions. It lasts 90 minutes.

  2. The practical test consists of carrying out a usability test with 3 participants of a website. Candidates are responsible for the recruitment of test participants. You have one week to carry out the usability test. You must submit a usability test report and raw videos.

Exam Preparation

As preparation for the exam, recognised training providers offer specialised advanced level trainings. While such trainings are not mandatory, they are helpful. Particularly with regard to the practical test of the CPUX-UT exam, it might prove beneficial to clarify with training providers if facilities may be used, as usability-labs could exist and be used after the theoretical test.

The curriculum of the CPUX-UT certificate is provided by the UXQB and can be found here . Another means of preparation is a publicly accessible usability test report , as well as further documents related to the CPUX-UT certification exam.


A prerequisite for taking the test to become a “Certified Professional in Usability and User Experience – Advanced Level” is the possession of the certificate “Certified Professional in Usability and User Experience – Foundation Level (CPUX-F) from UXQB e.V. Nobody will be allowed to take part in the test without this certificate; no alternative certificates will be accepted.


UXQB CPUX Certification is valid permanently.
