I'm a business analyst who has done a significant amount of product design and UX in my roles over the past few years. The last role was adding new features to an existing product while my current role is building a product from scratch.
My background is in product design so I understand the design process and I'm proficient at wireframing/prototyping in Axure and Balsamiq. I've learnt UX on the job and haven't done any 'formal' UX training.
What I haven't done much of in my roles are user research and usability testing and would definitely like to bolster these areas.
I have an opportunity to do some professional development and am interested in the 1 week UX training courses offered by Peak Usability and General Assembly in Sydney as I prefer face-to-face over online training.
Based on the above, how valuable will going to one of these UX training courses be?
