How to learn UX in half the time.

(Even if you come from an unrelated industry or don't have design skills!)

UX is one of the hottest growing technology fields right now, with average salaries topping $80,000+ in major job markets.

But user experience is a broad field with seemingly endless topics to learn.

What design topics are the most important to learn that actually make you stand out as a job applicant?

And how can you gain all this UX knowledge thoroughly and quickly?

The UX Fundamentals Course is designed as the one stop shop to help you develop all the necessary UX skills in half the normal amount of time. 

It's 50+ lessons packaged as one convenient, self-paced course.

Why UX beginner struggle...

Let me know if any of these situations sound familiar:

  • You're looking into a class but it's not self-paced, requiring your physical presence...

  • The bootcamp you're looking into costs thousands of dollars above your budget...

  • After graduating from a design program, you don't know where all your lessons went (or they're scattered all over the place) 

If you're anything like me, you hate to waste money and time.  

After attending costly UX bootcamps (and even teaching at one myself!) I saw the frustrations of traditional UX education.

That's why I built UX Fundamentals from the ground up as a quick, yet complete design training that's focused on getting career transitioners the expertise they need.
