This course was one of the first CCXP resources out there. It was a huge help in passing with my first attempt.

Jennifer Wright, PhD, CCXPJennifer Wright, PhD, CCXP, Vice President of Customer Experience, Magellan Health

The ClearAction course goes beyond test preparation. It’s a thorough and deep review of the CX body of knowledge. I not only felt prepared to take the test, I felt prepared to take on a major CX role in my organization and to approach the work feeling confident that I could make a measurable and meaningful impact.

Vice President of Customer Experience

I might not have passed the test without taking this course. The myth-busters really pushed me over the top to answer quite a few of the questions I would have not been confident in otherwise.

The way the course is organized helped me synthesize my thoughts around the CX competencies. Even if I could have passed the exam without taking this course, it was time well spent.

Jessica Noble, CCXP, Enavate

This course was muy excellente! It really helped me uncover what I did not know and also helped me solidify my approach to CX transformation. I loved that I could listen in my car, on a tablet or at my desk. I would highly recommend this course. Worth every penny and I also passed the CCXP exam the first time!

Heather YoungerHeather Younger, J.D., CCXP, Employee Fanatix

Customer Experience is a broad topic and it would have been difficult to focus myself on the right things without this course to guide me. Lynn herself was friendly and available, making contact via email to see if she could assist in any way. I definitely believe it was worth the cost!

Jean Ochse, CCXP

Personally, I think the price paid is less than what it is actually worth. The course should be in the USD $700’s, if not more.

Thank you, Lynn Hunsaker. Great course, and helped me pass on the 1st attempt.

Ron Mozalewski, CCXP, Executive Director, Advocate Health Care

I wanted to congratulate you on your course. I felt it completely covered the material perfectly and a fellow CXPA member recommended it to me. Considering the course was concise, that is very impressive, indeed! I was able to do a complete refresher the morning of the exam.

I found the course materials excellent. They were my main source of preparation for the exam. If you have a background in CX, then the recordings and other reading materials on this site are all that you need. Lynn was also a fantastic help on specific queries that I had at different stages. She is responsive, helpful and very supportive. I would highly recommend ClearAction.

Graham Fagan, CCXP, Group Director, AIB

The course was extremely helpful. I felt that your instruction was spot on.

Thank you so much, Lynn Hunsaker. I couldn’t have done it without you. Thankful for you and ClearAction.

Carrie Weston, CCXP, Director of Customer Experience, Knape & Vogt Manufacturing

Benefits of becoming a CCXP include:

  • Validates credibility and expertise
  • Provides a framework for advancement
  • Increases marketability
  • Demonstrates commitment to continuous improvement

Many resource providers inappropriately use the terms “Certified,” “Accredited,” or “Accreditation” when the resource offered does not meet the rigor of measurement against an independent criterion of proficiency. Further, because there are many CX courses and certificate programs available, it is important to carefully consider the skills and qualifications of the program provider. The Customer Experience Professionals Association (CXPA) has established its Recognized Training Provider program to make that selection easier for you by evaluating RTPs against a tough set of quality standards. CXPA has also published a guide to “Choosing the right resources to strengthen your CX knowledge and programs.”


Here are four key questions to ask as you navigate the CX credentials landscape:

  1. Was the resource developed through a broad, consensus based process in alignment with industry standards for workplace credentials and does it properly represent itself?
  2. What rigor is reflected in the qualifications and assessment process of the credential?
  3. What is the reputation, reach, and track record of the resource provider?
  4. Do you have evidence that the credential is valued by employers?

 

From the CXPA website:

The CCXP program provides a means for individuals to obtain professional recognition of their high levels of knowledge of the customer experience discipline. Until the CXPA established this accreditation, there was no industry-wide, standardized avenue for customer experience (CX) practitioners to demonstrate their expertise and accomplishments, and no formal credentials that showcased an individual’s standing in the industry. As a non-profit, independent association, the CXPA is well positioned to establish the CCXP as a recognized and admired professional credential.

For practitioners, the CCXP program provides recognition of a high level of knowledge in the field of customer experience and offers a framework for continual development. Candidates for this credential are looking to distinguish themselves in the workplace, validate their skills, and maximize their earning potential.

For the industry and employers, the CCXP program encompasses a core set of CX competence areas and ensures that certified professionals possess a manager-level mastery of standardized disciplines.


Candidates should have a bachelor’s degree plus three years of direct, full-time CX experience, or five years of direct, full-time CX experience if you do not have a bachelor’s degree. Both members and non-members of CXPA are eligible.

The certification exam consists of 100 items. All items are multiple-choice, with one correct answer and three incorrect options.

The score required to pass the examination is 80%. This passing point was established according to accepted practices for standardized testing, and it reflects the difficulty of individual examination items, as well as the overall difficulty of the exam.

The content of the CCXP Certification Exam is based on an industry-wide job task analysis that was conducted by the CXPA in 2020. As part of this process, more than 150 customer experience professionals provided feedback on the importance of job tasks covering the scope of the CX profession. Five competencies for CX were identified through the results of this analysis, and each area is represented by 13 to 20 questions on the 100-question exam:

  • Customer Experience Strategy
  • Customer Insights & Understanding
  • Culture & Accountability
  • Design & Improvement
  • Metrics & ROI

I found the course materials excellent. They were my main source of preparation for the exam. If you have a background in CX, then the recordings and other reading materials on this site are all that you need. Lynn was also a fantastic help on specific queries that I had at different stages. She is responsive, helpful and very supportive. I would highly recommend ClearAction.
