What people say
The topics covered in the learning courses were exhaustive and well structured, and the project work was essential in bringing the theory to life.
...it was invaluable to be able to do some hands-on work for every step in a UX project. I never felt I was flying blind, even for the aspects of UX that I had no prior experience in.
I am very happy with the skills I learned, and feel ready and well prepared to commence work in the UX field.
Freelance Graphic Designer
The course is everything it promised to be - skills focused in a highly practical and process-driven way, aptly grounded in theory and focused on the craft rather than specific tools.
The quality of engaged feedback and guidance is a strong indicator of the PeakXD team's collective experience, professionalism, and mentoring culture."
Tim Pilbrow Ph.D. - Melbourne
The course covered all the research aspects of how to set up a decent foundation for the user experience. The knowledge from the PeakXD team was very impressive.
It taught me to ensure that the foundation of what it is I am exactly designing is strong and the research is there to back it up before I even start building the house on top.
Overall, am very happy with this course I would recommend it to anyone who knows very little about design, like me a few months back.
Freelance UX Designer
My experience with the Peak XD course has been outstanding. The real project brought everything to life. The course is a treasure trove of tips and tricks, and the real-life examples and case studies make it easy to understand how UX is applied.
Tania and Miranda are excellent trainers - patient, caring, and highly experienced in their field. They both made themselves very accessible, providing lots of opportunities to ask questions.
I'm so glad I decided to go with PeakXD. They are a world-class UX training organization, and I recommend them without hesitation.

Note: we do not guarantee that you will automatically pass the exam after this program. To maintain the integrity of the certification it is only awarded to those who have achieved a pass in the exam and this is regulated by a third party. We give you a practice exam and answer sheet which should prepare you for the exam.
Stand out from other UX course graduates: We provide training to get you industry recognised certification offered by an external industry association. It's a stamp of excellence: Certification tells your employer and your colleagues that you've got a higher standard of knowledge and expertise. It'll help your career progression: Whether you want to 'side step into a UX Career from another profession', 'win the contract' or 'move up in your organisation', having a Foundation Certification in User Experience will boost your chances of success. Earn more money: Who doesn't want more money? Certification demonstrates that you're committed to your profession and you're willing to invest in your future. Employers will see your value, and you can use this to justify a promotion or pay increase. Future-proof yourself: One of the biggest benefits of certification is the study and time you put in to your own personal learning. The certificate at the end is also a bonus, but the time you put in will keep you current.
You can sit the exam at any point in the 6 months after you complete either program.
For the UX Accelerator, your assessment fee is included and we will provide you with an exam voucher code that you can use to book the exam at an approved examination centre.
There are currently 5,000 approved examination centres in 175 countries.
You can search for your city to see where your nearest test centre is. We can also arrange online remote proctoring (examination) if for some reason you cannot get to a test centre.
If you choose the UX Design Course & Project, you can still sit the exam but the assessment fee is not included in the course cost.
