Cohort 4 of the OOUX Masterclass Certification Program is SOLD OUT. Stay tuned for Cohort 5 to become available August 2021!
A rigorous, face-paced course designed and delivered by Sophia Prater; for UX designers, developers, and digital product people who are tackling complexity, wrangling stakeholders, and trying to make systems-level change in the experiences they create. The 30 spots of Cohort 4 have all filled up, but you can still take The Self-Paced Object-Oriented UX Masterclass.
You’ll learn a philosophy and a methodology that will give you newfound confidence in your designs because you will have rigorous tools to break down complexity. Using a repeatable, straightforward, and structured process, you'll be able to create naturally intuitive user experiences that reflect the way that the human brain works. Basically, you’ll become a better designer.
You’ll also gain confidence in dealing with stakeholders, users, subject-matter experts, and clients—you’ll know you are asking the right questions, at the right time. You’ll involve them early, and you’ll know exactly what to do with them. Basically, you’ll become a better facilitator.
Get out of the business of doing surface-level UX work. You’ll gain the skills to take your design work deep into the business structure, the information layer, and the technical layer. You’ll solve systemic issues for your organization or clients. Basically, you’ll learn how to make lasting, impactful change.
And so—expect faster promotions, better interviews (rock those whiteboard challenges), brighter career opportunities—and most importantly, expect to have more fun at work.
You'll get lifetime access to all the video lectures (25 hours+ total), starting March 15th. Over the course of 10 weeks, you'll get access to 2-3 hours of video lectures each week — except week 7, which is a catch-up week.
You'll have lifetime access to all the worksheets, challenges, assignments, practice problems, and lecture materials.
You'll have lifetime access to all the latest content, updates, and innovations in the world of OOUX.
The OOUX Masterclass will challenge you with 15+ exercises and assignments as you follow the lecture series through the course.
In the Certification program, you'll get individual feedback on your work from Sophia and Certified OOUX Strategist Mentors.
Yup. Lifetime access. The OOUX Forum is an active, intimate, and vibrant community. You'll connect with members from past cohorts—some of whom offer mentoring calls so they can sharpen their skills by helping you! Sophia is active in the forum throughout the week—answering your questions and providing feedback.
There is one 90-minute, weekly office hours at 12pm EST (5pm GMT) on Mondays.
Two 20-minute coaching calls with Sophia. We’ll review all your stickiest questions about the course but can also discuss career growth and how to integrate OOUX into your work.
Certification Program enrollees can schedule talks with Certified OOUX Strategist Mentors via the OOUX Forum anytime they want.
On completion of all the assignments and a passing grade on the final exam (yes, there’s a test), you’ll get your certificate in OOUX along with a profile on OOUX.com and lots of official bling to add to your Linkedin profile. More and more companies are looking for designers who can do this transformative type of work; you'll be featured front and center as an expert.

You’ll choose 1 of 3 example projects to use for the duration of the course. If you have a special “pet project” that you’ve been wanting to explore, let's talk! You could use this course to finally give that "million dollar idea" some attention.
Every Wednesday, 2-3 hours of video lectures will become available to you, along with an assignment. You'll have until Monday to take in the content, work on your assignment, and post your questions to the OOUX Forum.
Every Monday, you'll participate in 1 of 2 office hours time slots (12pm EST or 5pm EST). After asking all your questions, you'll have some time to refine your assignment before the next module of lectures drop.
Or maybe you don't want to wait for the next Cohort to start? No problem! You can take the Self-paced OOUX Masterclass now. And the best part is, if you want to get the certification later, the investment you make in the Self-paced OOUX Masterclass, can go toward your tuition for the Certification Cohort you join!Learn more about the Self-paced Object-Oriented UX Masterclass
Nope. We want to make sure this certification really means something. You'll need to complete all the weekly challenges and pass the test at the end of the program to get certified.
Don’t worry. If you do the work, we will do the work to make sure you understand the material. No one who has taken the test has failed . . . yet. Pay attention, do your work, and you'll be fine. If you are really having trouble, you'll always be able to purchase an extra hour-long sessions for $150.
Your certification will last three years from the time of the last lecture. To renew and "level up" you'll need to recertify by joining a future cohort for the program. You'll only ever have to pay 50% of the current cost of certification. You'll come in with special senior status and your profile on OOUX.com will reflect your seniority as well.
$1,497 USD gets you one premium spot. Less than the cost of a conference if you factor in airfare, hotel, and the restaurant bills. If you could take on more UX complexity with ease, turn stakeholders into putty in your hands, communicate with developers with confidence, and step into more strategic leadership roles—what would that be worth to you?
YOU BET. We hope to give you a 100x return on your investment, which will pay dividends throughout your career. Honestly, we hope to completely super-power your career trajectory. But if you don't enjoy the course, we promise a full refund (minus the processing fees). You'll need to participate fully for the first three weeks: attending office hours and doing your assignments. After three weeks, if you are not feeling it and you are disappointed with what you are getting out of this course, just let us know. We will only ask that you provide feedback to help us understand what was missing. By the way, this money-back guarantee has NEVER been leveraged by a student. We are confident you'll become an OOUXer for life!
