Human Factors International — Certified Usability Analyst (CUA) Track

Become among the first Certified Usability Analysts in the Philippines

Everything has a front-end user interface, from devices to websites and apps, and often the interface design falls short outside the laboratory, in the real world.

Creating a positive user experience (UX) is a critical challenge for any organization. Even for the simplest technologies, companies must find new and creative ways to make users feel at ease, engaged, and empowered.

Human Factors International (HFI) is the world’s largest company specializing in user experience/user centered design, training, consulting, and certification. In 30 years they have provided consulting and training services for Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 companies.

For the first time, HFI is bringing their Certified Usability Analyst (CUA) training program to Manila under the auspices of PCCI. It gives companies and individuals the opportunity to earn a UX analyst certification that is accepted and honored globally.

User Experience (UX) Foundations: The Core Insights, Models, and Research Findings (2 days)

Who should attend

Usability practitioners, website/intranet developers, application developers, interface designers, project managers— with the desire to explore and apply scientific usability research to their practical, daily work.

Practical Usability Testing (2 days)

This course focuses on the skills and knowledge also covered in the Certified Usability Analyst (CUA)™ examination.

Who should attend

Usability practitioners, website/intranet developers, application developers, interface designers, project managers, quality control personnel, market researchers, and graphic artists.
