How UX design certifications Work

Prove your design knowledge by earning a Uxcel Design Certification. Our certification program tests your skills and your understanding of UX design principles. Uxcel offers certifications for the most popular designer roles, with more on the way. Show colleagues and hiring managers that you have the required skills to succeed in a design-first organization.

Uxcel Design Certifications are merit-based, meaning you must have a firm understanding of UX design competencies. To earn your Uxcel Design Certification, you must pass a multiple choice examination with a score of 75% or higher.

Currently, we offer a Level 1 certification for each designer role, but we’re currently working on both Level 2 and Level 3 (Master), which we aim to release in early 2023.

The best online learning platform.

I was amazed when I used this platform for the first time. The traditional e-learning platforms are tedious and boring with too much redundant information.

This platform is fun, direct to the point, and full of benefits that I couldn't mention all of them.
