Yes, you can. After you select your tickets, when you are asked to choose a payment type, you can choose 'Pay by invoice' and you will be emailed the invoice and your place at our course will be reserved.

You can then give this to your accounts area or manager to process the payment via EFT.

If your accounts area or manager prefers to pay the manual invoices via corporate credit card we can arrange that but credit card fees will apply as we use a separate secure payment gateway that charges ~1.9%.

Unfortunately, we don't hold spots or early bird tickets until you register so we encourage you to seek approval to attend the course based on the full fee ticket price. If you are concerned, please contact us.

If you have in-principal approval and just need to get official approval, we recommend that you register and select the pay-by-invoice option at checkout. You can then give this to your accounts area or manager to process the payment via EFT.

If your accounts area or manager prefers to pay the manual invoices via corporate credit card we can arrange that but credit card fees will apply as we use a separate secure payment gateway that charges ~1.9%. 

Alternatively, you can get approval first to pay by corporate credit card at the time you register with no credit card fee. 

Yes, when you register for our in-person course we will ask you for your dietary requirements and do our best to cater for these. We will also send a reminder just prior to the event to make sure we have captured any changes to your dietary needs. No additional charge for dietary requirements.

We have had complete beginners as well as advanced UX practitioners complete our course and they all give us good course ratings. While it will help if you have experience or qualifications in either IT, digital, market research, psychology, social research or marketing, it is not essential. However, if you are side-stepping from a completely unrelated field and want to switch careers into UX, we recommend you join our UX Accelerator mentoring program instead.

If you are unable to attend for health reasons, including COVID, please refer to our terms and conditions.

Yes, you can get a Team Ticket if you have 4 or more people wanting to attend. The team ticket allows you to buy 4 tickets for the price of 3. 

If you have more than 8 people interested in attending, you may also consider in-house training as a cost-effective approach. Please see Corporate Training Options

Success stories

The course gave me the framework and the language that I was missing to help me to effectively advocate for good UX/CX in design discussions and decisions. I still refer to my course notes weekly and am forever encouraging colleagues to also attend the course.
