What is Included?
The prices shown above cover your tuition. Your hotel cost (if any) must be paid directly to your hotel.
Your registration is not complete until full payment is received. If your company requires an invoice, please use either the printable invoice or the e-mail confirmation you will receive following online registration. Both will include the dates, the events you have registered for, and the conference fee. The Nielsen Norman Group has contracted USMotivation, a conference-management firm, to handle all billing and customer service for this event.
Cancellation, Substitution, and Refund Policy
If you must cancel after registering, your registration fee will be refunded less a 20% handling fee, provided that written notice of cancellation is received by September 4, 2015. After that, the refund is 50%. No refunds will be granted after September 11, 2015, but we will accept a substitute attendee if we receive a written note from the registered attendee stating his or her intention to transfer registration to a named individual. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with cancellation, substitution, or refund requests.
Speaker Substitutions and Course Cancellations
We reserve the right to substitute speakers, cancel seminars, or cancel the entire event. In such cases, our liability is limited to refunding the registration fees you have paid for the affected days. Speakers may need to be substituted in case of illness, accidents, airline problems, or other issues that prevent a scheduled speaker from presenting as planned. We will endeavor to get a substitute speaker, but this may not always be possible because of the expertise required and the short notice available in most such cases.
Participate in our UX Certification program to test your UX knowledge and add credentials to your training. Earning a UX Certificate enables you to demonstrate your expertise to colleagues, clients, and managers.
How It Works
- 5 courses, 5 exams: Attend any 5 courses offered at Usability Week, and pass the exam for each course.
- Exam Deadline: To earn UX Certification credit, you must pass your exams within 35 calendar days of the last day of Usability Week.
- Exam Administrative Fees: Pay in advance when you register, or pay exam fees after Usability Week.
- Timing Requirements: It is not necessary to complete all 5 courses at a single event. You can earn part of your credits now, and finish the remaining requirements at a future Usability Week.
- Exam Access: Exams are administered online. After Usability Week ends, all training participants receive detailed instructions for paying exam fees and accessing exams.
- Specialties: Specialties are optional. If you select 5 courses within a specific topic area (such as Interaction Design, Mobile Design, UX Research, or Web Design), your UX Certificate will also include a Specialty designation indicating that your studies were concentrated in that topic.
