General Info and “Fine Print”

BYO Laptop

Bring your laptop with Axure loaded and build a prototype along with your trainer. Trial versions are also OK.

For remote, webinar-style classes, we suggest two screens: one for what your trainer is doing, one to work along with your trainer. One huge screen split in two will also work.

Who Should Attend

This workshop would be great for anybody new or relatively new to Axure as well as people looking to learn more intermediate/advanced prototyping skills.

  • Interaction designers, visual designers, product designers.
  • Product managers, product owners.
  • UX and Creative leads, managers, directors.
  • Anyone who is evaluating Axure or already using it.

Not a beginner to Axure?

Our classes are for you too. You may have to suffer through some things you already know. But so far, EVERY beginner or intermediate Axure user has been thrilled to learn new things in our classes. They’ve also been excited about learning better and more efficient ways to do things they thought they knew.

Plus with our classes now being on Axure 8, if version 8 is new to you, you’ll learn some new tricks that Axure 8 offers that 7 and earlier versions couldn’t do.

Prerequisites for our Core Skills workshop

None really! We want to welcome everybody at all levels. You should know what x and y coordinates are. Other than that, our typically trainee is someone who opened Axure, looked at it, got scared, and closed it.

Payment, Cancellation, & Other Terms

Most companies are willing to pay for Axure training as part of personal and career development. Check with the boss! This might be covered.

Early bird pricing ends one month before Day 1 of the workshop starts.

Cancellation and Refund Policy:

If you can substitute your registration for someone else, you will not be charged a cancellation fee (nor will you receive a refund).

If you cancel on or before 1 month from the class start date, you will receive a full refund minus a $50 cancellation fee.

If you cancel within 1 month of the class start date, you will receive a full refund minus a $100 cancellation fee.

Post-Training & Completion Certificate

You will get a copy of the Axure file your trainer builds. You will also receive one code that will give you free access to our video series online.

This one code is to share with those from your company who took our training. This is in lieu of us recording a video of our session and assuming people want to shuffle through hours of unchaptered video to find a certain lesson. Our video course is broken into short chapters and lessons that will make refreshing memories much easier.

If you find you need additional training later, we can quote live, remote training as an optional add-on after on site training. You are welcome to fly us back if that would better serve your needs.

Free Follow-Up Training Time

We want each attendee to be truly happy with our workshop training. We want to reinforce learning and help troubleshoot any mistakes attendees are making once they are building with Axure. Therefore, we are offering each company in attendance one hour of free remote training (live via an online remote collaboration system) any time after the workshop. If you received training with others from your company, this hour is to share.

Certificate of Completion

Each attendee who completes a workshop will receive a certificate of completion from Ptype.

Axure doesn’t allow any company to give a certificate that says something like, “Certified Axure Professional,” so the best we can do is a completion certificate from our company.

Group Discounts

Our registration system will automatically give discounts based on the size of your group.

About Your Trainer

Ptype principal and your trainer, Debbie Levitt, is an Interaction Designer and Information Architect (when not training people on Axure). As someone using Axure for work nearly daily since early 2011, her instruction style incorporates her experiences, tips, and best practices. She has created customized curricula and trained individuals, startups, agencies, and corporations.

Debbie's first public training course was in 1995 when she was 23 years old. She taught school teachers how to build web pages with HTML and why they're not supposed to steal images off other people's websites. Debbie has been teaching Axure since 2012 and is proud to be one of the few Axure-recommended trainers on the planet.
