***contributes to HFI's Certified Usability Analyst (CUA) certification***
Designing intuitive and effective user interfaces is both science and art. During this course, participants will learn how to apply research-based and field-tested Web and application design principles and methodologies.
Initially they will focus on the four foundational layers of the interface: Navigation, Presentation, Content, and Interaction.
Participants will then be provided with the framework and methodology needed to support rapid prototyping initiatives.
Finally, they will extend their sphere of influence through the application of accessibility and cross-cultural design methods.
The course is led by experienced HFI consultants and includes in-depth discussions, challenging and interactive exercises, and fully documented student materials.

Thank you for an excellent class. Your presentation was superb. It looked like you were having fun, and that set the tone for the class. On day two, I dragged myself in. A crisis at work had kept me up half the night before, and I was running on only four hours of sleep and a quart of coffee. I fully expected to nod off several times during the day. It never happened. The material and your engaging delivery kept me alert and attentive for the entire day ... Your answers to our individual questions instructed the entire class. I hope to convince a few other people in our organization to attend this class in the future. Best wishes for continued success. Keep having fun!" —D.C.
"The fact that this course did not focus on specific technical aspects was refreshing. It was much easier to absorb the ideas and concepts this way. I would especially recommend this type of course for technical people, because we do not normally consider the end-user's perspective – this class teaches us how to do that.!" —B.M.
"Excellent design course." —J.W.
