Certified Professional for Usability and User Experience Engineering - Foundation Level

Acquiring basic knowledge will warrant that fundamental insights into human patterns (e.g. perception, mental models, handling of errors) as well as the techniques required for the development of interactive systems (e.g. styles of interaction, modeling methods, dialog development) are obtained. Standards and norms as well as style guides are also included.

One of the central topics is the development process: Based on the interpretation of the term Usability Engineering it will become evident that ergonomics do not evolve only at certain points or is only proven at the end, for instance with the assistance of user questions, but that complete engineering compliant processes have to exist, which include everything from requirements analyses to prototyping and specification to the implementation and evaluation as well as the test.
