The CPUX-F certificate

The International Usability and User Experience Qualification Board (UXQB) is an association of international experts in the field of usability and user experience. CPUX is part of the internationally standardized education and training program. To receive the certificate, a 75-minute multiple-choice exam with 40 questions must be successfully passed (70% of the points). The certificate entitles the holder to certify the advanced levels User Requirements Engineering (CPUX-UR), Design Solutions (CPUX-DS) and Usability Testing and Evaluation (CPUX-UT).

Certification fees
The certification is optional. Registration can be made via the Usability Academy or directly with the Certible examination organization. The choice of date is completely flexible. After participation in the seminar, a learning period of about 3 days has proven itself.

Note: If the exam is booked via Mindfacts, the participant will receive a voucher in advance with which they can make an appointment on the Certible website.

Frequently asked questions about the CPUX-F seminar

The activities of human-centered design include a variety of processes and technical terms. In the 3-day version, we focus on practical exercises in addition to theoretical instruction. In exemplary exam questions, discussion rounds, small group work in Miro and in 2-person breakout sessions for interviews, we give participants the opportunity to practice and internalize what they have learned.

Yes, definitely! There is a whole range of arguments:

  • Check if your basic knowledge as a practitioner is up to date.
  • In conversations (team, customers), be well-versed in the use of technical terms and the classification of processes in the activities of human-centered design.
  • Show others (team, clients) that you have mastered the basics on UX and usability.
  • Make yourself more interesting on the job market with a certificate in HCD.
  • Be a role model for newcomers to the field of usability and user experience.

All participants receive a certificate of participation from Mindfacts after the seminar, but this is not equivalent to the official, internationally recognized certificate. The certificate “Certified Professional for Usability and User Experience – Foundation Level (CPUX-F)” is getting more and more attention, also in the human resources sector. In addition, the certificate enables you to complete official certifications in the UR, DS and UT advanced seminars as well.

In order to be able to work as a CPUX-F trainer yourself, the certificate is also required in addition to official trainer accreditation with UXQB e.V. (passing grade: 80%).

No, the exam date can be chosen flexibly. We recommend that you take a few days after the seminar to review the contents of the seminar before taking the exam. If the exam is booked via Mindfacts, the participant will receive a voucher in advance with which they can make an appointment on the Certible website (

The exam takes place during a video session with Certible. The certification exam consists of 40 multiple-choice questions covering basic definitions and concepts of usability and user experience. There are always six answer choices per question, with one, two, or three correct answers (the number of correct answers is displayed). Participants must answer at least 70% of the questions (28 out of 40) correctly. The duration of the exam is 75 minutes (90 minutes for non-native speakers).

A minimum score of 80% is required to be approved as a CPUX-F trainer. No aids are allowed during the exam.

The required knowledge is contained in the publicly available curriculum and glossary.

No, the preparation training and the certification are not related in time. There is always the possibility to still decide for certification after the seminar.

We recommend the examination by the independent certification provider Certible. You can also order the exam (without training) directly from Certible.

A failed certification exam can be repeated. If you score less than 70% of the points (28 out of 40) on the exam, it is considered failed. If this is the case, you can retake the exam a maximum of two additional times within one year. After the third attempt, a waiting period of one year is required. When retaking the exam, costs will again be incurred. There are (reduced) costs for the repetition at Certible.

If 4 people from a company are interested in training on CPUX-F, we should talk about the possibility of an InHouse seminar. We offer InHouse-Seminar both in presence and online. Advantage: Maybe there are more interested people in the company, then the participation fees are significantly lower compared to participation in public seminars. The agreement of a desired date (and if necessary also collective dates for examinations) is self-evident.

Yes, we also offer dates for public seminars in English from Q3 2023. You can also request In-house seminars in English at Mindfacts.
