I absolutely loved this course!! The materials (and resources…so many resources) are current, the way it is delivered is engaging - using real-life examples and working on a real project helps to cement your learning. I joined the course to round out my skills and get a piece of paper, but I got so much more out of it than I expected, as I realised my belief and experience with UX consultants in the past was deeply flawed. The team that provides this course, in contrast, are brilliant, they really know what they are doing. No matter where you are in your career, there are so many elements in this course that you can take away and apply to corporate life. Thank you PeakXD for all your support – what a team!!

Frequently Asked Questions

The UX Design course does not have a job guarantee, Only our UX Accelerator mentoring program has a conditional job guarantee, where we will work with you and guide you through the process of landing an internship or UX job within 6 months. We will review your resume and portfolio and help you connect with industry employers and recruiters through our networks.  We also offer qualifying students internships in our UX consulting company to give you more experience.  As long as you follow the steps we suggest if you don't find a role within 6 months you can undertake another project and additional cycle of coaching for free. Conditions apply.

While it is definitely advantageous to have experience or qualitifications in either IT, digital, market research, psychology, social research or marketing, it is not essential but you will need to spend a few more hours a week on the program. We will teach you all the foundations of UX to start your career. If you are side-stepping from a completely unrelated field we recommend you join our UX Accelerator mentoring program.

The monthly coaching calls are on the second Thursday of every month at around 10am Australia time (AEST) which is Sunday night US time. If you can't attend the coaching call live you can watch the replay which we post it in the portal within 48 hours.

Not for the UX Design course & project - as we unlock everything from day 1. But we do have a refund satisfaction guarantee for the UX Accelerator! But it does have conditions. We offer a full money-back guarantee, if in the first 30 days after you get access to the UX Accelerator course materials, and after you have tried the program - if for any reason you don’t want to continue with the course - then contact us and we will refund you in full. This request must come in writing as an email to our support@peakxd.com.au within 30 days, and you need to have attended at least 1 live coaching call and completed the first 2 weeks activities. After this, we will assume, you’re getting great value. All refunds are processed at the equivalent of the average USD/ AUD spot rate of the day when the purchase was made. Client requesting refund pays any associated bank fees. We made this course with a goal to empower you to improve the world through human-centred design. It is our goal to produce a product that will help you achieve this. We believe we have created a valuable product that will help you learn the tools, methodologies and techniques of user-centred design. 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 next 12 months. When you complete all modules and are ready to sit your exam we will give you instructions to help you book in for your 1 hour exam. The exam sitting fee is not included with the UX Design Course & Project. 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 help you arrange online remote protoring (examination) if for some reason you cannot get to a test centre.
