Roll up your sleeves — it’s time to brush up your UX skills! How would you architect an effective multi-level navigation for a large government website? What about enterprise-grade tables with intricate forms, filters and search? Or perhaps a neat seat selection UI for a Formula 1 Grand Prix? Well, fasten your seat belt!

In a jam-packed 4-weeks UX training with Vitaly Friedman, you’ll learn how to deal with real-life UX challenges from the ground up. Get ready: you’ll sail uncharted waters, designing truly complex interfaces and receiving feedback from people around the world. Plus: you’ll get a UX certificate for all your hard work as well.


As a part of the training, you’ll get life-time full access to the “Smart Interface Design Patterns” video course, a shiny new 6h video library with Vitaly. Literally with 100s of hand-picked examples, case studies and best practices.

4 Weeks, 4 Assignments, 8 Live Sessions

The UX training is designed to help you grow as a UX professional. We won’t be spending much time with the basics; instead, we’ll dive straight into complex UX challenges in complex environments — be it enterprise, governments or corporate world. That will keep us on our toes!

Every week, we’ll combine 2.5h live sessions with individual assignments. Of course, the live sessions will focus on insights from user research, case studies and best practices. But they will also highlight a specific UX technique or methodology that you can use to tackle a challenge at hand.

The highlight of the project will be in you applying all these insights in practice — by completing your individual weekly assignment. However, you won’t be alone in this: you’ll receive feedback from other participants, and you’ll be designing closely with Vitaly while getting personal 1:1 feedback as you make progress.

And if you have questions, there is also an Open Hour available for all your questions every week.

Here’s What You Should Be Expecting:

  • Weekly live sessions and UX deep dives (2.5h long, in total 8 sessions),
  • Individual UX assignments, to be completed weekly (takes 4–8 hours),
  • Collaborative design reviews and design workouts,
  • 1:1 feedback with Vitaly: helpful, constructive and personal,
  • Open hours to get early feedback and ask all your questions,
  • Life-time access to all videos, slides and checklists
  • Life-time full access to “Smart Interface Design Patterns” (6h+ video),
  • Flexible re-scheduling: if something comes up and you can’t attend, you can always switch to a training happening later that or next year (we run it 2× a year),
  • UX certificate 🏅 for all your hard work
    (once you’ve successfully completed all 4 UX assignments).

  • Complex multi-level navigation (6–7 levels) in a large organization, prioritization techniques, card sorting, tree testing, validation, sideways navigation, mega-dropdowns.
