BCPE Adds New Certification Designations

The Board of Certification in Professional Ergonomics (BCPE) recently announced the addition of the Certified User Experience (CUXP) and Associate User Experience (AUXP) certification designations.

CUXP is equivalent to the CPE and CHFP designations, and AUXP is equivalent to the AEP and AHFP designations. The same certification requirements, application procedures, and examination are required for CPE/CHFP/CUXP and AEP/AHFP/AUXP certification.

BCPE said it established the CUXP and AUXP designations in response to growing market acceptance of "User Experience" as an additional and equivalent title to Ergonomics and Human Factors, and to provide BCPE certificate holders with greater flexibility by offering this additional designation option over the course of their professional career.</p>

<p>Dr. Arnie Lund, BCPE past president, and current Directors Dr. Jim Kondziela and Dr. Jim Rudd, as well as several BCPE certificate holders, have enthusiastically adopted the new CUXP designation and begun using it in place of their former CPE or CHFP titles. "BCPE built its certification model originally in part on the experiences of pioneers in the field of User Experience and, as human-computer interaction, design, and usability have continued to evolve, BCPE has refreshed the model of the entire field to reflect the changes," Lund said. "This is an exciting milestone recognizing that the best user-centered design builds on a deep knowledge of people, systems, the context of use and how they interact, and it is an honor to be part it."
