Why certification?

On-Off Group is now one of only 3 companies worldwide to be accredited with the British Computing Society (BCS) to deliver their ISO 9241-210 based Foundation Certificate in User Experience.

 

The BCS launched the UX certification in 2015 to ensure a robust certification that reflects the skills needed in the industry.

 

Speaking at the time of launch, Jon Buttriss, the CEO of BCS Learning & Development Ltd, said: “UX focuses on a person’s behaviours, attitudes, and emotions when using a particular product, system or service. In today’s digital world ensuring the best User Experience is critical for organisations; and employing people who are highly skilled in UX is essential in achieving this.”

 

He continued: “As the importance of user experience grows, companies have identified a greater need for those operating in UX to prove their skillset within a recognised framework. Working alongside experts in the field, we have created the Foundation Certificate in User Experience to reflect this.”
