Mentor-coaching is an important requirement of the UX Masters Academy credentialing process. We believe that it is vital to the development and growth of the practitioner seeking a UXMA certification to have a series of one-on-one dialogues with a qualified mentor who can coach an individual to stretch and grow beyond their current UX capability set, and consistently apply the UXMA Core Competencies to their UX practice.

A mentor-coach is a UXMA-certified member of our community who helps individuals practice and apply the advanced techniques and core competencies they learn in their core UXMA courses.

Included in your certification curriculum is six mentor-coaching sessions, which typically take place by phone or video conference. These sessions are intended to be conducted in 1-hour increments, one after each of the core courses. Many participants find it exceedingly helpful to have another practitioner (a neutral third party outside of their company) to run ideas by. Often, they continue to work with their mentor-coach independently after the certification process is completed.

Working with a qualified mentor-coach provides the opportunity to share your UX skills with someone who can serve as a sounding board, offer advice, and provide feedback regarding the application of UXMA Core Competencies, tools, and techniques you will learn in the training.
