Rapid Prototyping With Axure

Level Up Your Axure Skills

We are one of the few companies on the planet recommended as an Axure trainer. We have been using Axure frequently since early 2011, and formally teaching it since early 2014. Our Axure training can be version 10 or any previous version that your teams might still be using.

We’re available for private Axure courses for individuals and teams. We love working with Axure newbies and the Axure curious, and we love sharing tips and best practices. We teach Axure from the perspective of real-world prototyping projects. We can start as basic, intermediate, or advanced as you want.

Just need a little training, a refresher, or some help with a current project? We also offer private training by the hour.

We designed our curriculum to take people from the simplest Axure concepts through intermediate techniques and finally to the advanced approaches. This helps ease people who might be new to Axure (or afraid of it) into things. Each lesson uses what we’ve learned previously. It’s all logical stepping stones with a focus on helping you think like Axure. Rather than memorizing steps, we want to teach you how to get Axure to do what you’re imagining.

When you take our live, private workshops, you will get free access to the matching video courses. That way, attendees can re-watch lessons or brush up any time.

Self-Paced Video Courses

For those who don’t like to budget for live on-site or remote training, or prefer video training, our three Axure courses are available online. Watch and rewatch without limits. Never expires.

“Core Skills” was created in December 2021 with Axure 10. “Advanced Skills” and “Mobile App Prototyping” were created in April 2016 with Axure 8. 95% of the lessons are still relevant if not identical, though the software interface has changed from Axure 8 to Axure 10.

Certificates of Completion are available once you have watched all the videos.

If you don’t care about a Certificate, you can also do our “Core Skills” course on YouTube, completely for free. I’m also taking Axure questions every Tuesday on the Delta CX YouTube channel as part of my “Office Hours/Ask Me Anything” show at 6:30pm Italy time.


Curriculum Details

Even if your team has some Axure experience, it can be beneficial to start everyone on the team with Core Skills. This ensures that people have the same knowledge, best practices, and approach tasks consistently.

Each “session” runs 90 minutes including time for questions. We then take a break or lunch depending upon what time it is. You can do full 8-hour training days (4 sessions per day) or half 3.5-hour training days (2 sessions per day). Days can be spread out as your schedule requires, or we can do all of the training back-to-back.

Those completing one or more of our workshops can request a Certificate of Completion. Axure doesn’t allow us to call you an “Axure Certified Something” or “Certified Axure Something” since neither we nor Axure vetted, checked, or tested your prototyping proficiency.
