NN/g User Experience (UX) Certification Program

UI / UX Design Certificate Training Program

New UX Course Combination

The Global Campus in Rogers is bringing Nielsen Norman Group back to Northwest Arkansas for another round of User Experience (UX) Certification classes this fall, to deliver five virtual training sessions. Advance your career by learning new tech skills to enhance user experience for websites and applications.

UX Certification Program

To earn a UX Certification from the NN/g, you must complete all five days of the workshop. NN/g will send emails to completers with links to access certification exams online. Earning a UX certificate validates your expertise to colleagues, clients, managers and job interviewers. It also allows you to elevate the websites you touch.

UX Master Certification

The Global Campus in Rogers plans to continue offering NN/g classes in the future. NN/g offers a UX Master Certification for those who have completed any 15 full-day NN/g training courses and passed exams for those courses.

5 Class Sessions

As a giveback to the Northwest Arkansas workforce during these challenging times, pricing for this round of UX training has been drastically reduced. This price reduction was made possible through grant funding. Normal pricing will return for future UX training.
