Design Better Products and Services

Host a training class for your team

We know you’re trying hard to design the best user experiences for your customers, but not every company has the luxury of an experienced UX team. 

We can help.

80 Watts offers targeted, personalized UX training courses to hit the biggest pain points to unlock your team’s potential.

  • Practical Experience: Your team will learn from our experiences through real examples from our projects, including templates that we use with our clients.
  • Live and Interactive With Experts: Virtual training covers the core theories, methods, and techniques of user research. Each session has time allocated for discussion, exercises, and Q&A.
  • Everyone is Welcome: You don’t have to have the title of Researcher to get a lot out of this class. It’s great for Designers, Product Owners, Executives and Developers, too!

We have over 40 years of experience designing and research products we’d be excited to share our knowledge with you.

What our clients say

The 80 Watts training approach fit very nicely with the way our team engages. The information 80 Watts delivered was both timely and useful and kept our team engaged. After three targeted sessions, our team walked away with tools and tactics that will be used to build an overall design approach that fits our needs.
Silas Williams Director, Consulting Services, Stibo Systems

“80 Watts’ training was incredible! The curriculum was broad enough to provide a comprehensive overview to participants with all levels of experience but still tackled many advanced concepts for those of us who are in the trenches. The knowledge and insight were invaluable to my team. Highly recommend this course for your research team as well as the business stakeholders who are impacted by their efforts.”
Greg G. Director of Product Research
