What UX-PM Certified Professionals have to say:

 

 

"When I attended the UX Certification, I was a Product Owner curious of what User Experience was about but unaware of the process and tools. Three years later I’m proud to say that UX and Agile are embedded in every solution we develop. This first encounter with UX through the UX-PM training program has been life changing for my company in the way we think and design our solutions".
