The GOLD STANDARD Customer Experience Management Course
Fast -track your CX Skills or prepare for the globally recognised CCXP credentials
With Customer Experience (CX for short) the hottest topic in business right now, there are significant opportunities for individuals armed with the latest skills to position themselves as a CX Management leader and drive change based on a customer-centric culture to deliver real, measurable results.
In this comprehensive 18 hour course delivered via 4 x 4.5 hour live Zoom sessions, you’ll learn the six core customer experience management skills and strategies based on the Internationally recognised CCXP certification (Certified Customer Experience Professional) ensuring the skills you learn are aligned to globally recognised best-practice techniques.
Please note: By undertaking this course you don’t need to pursue the CCXP certification – the learnings are based on their international best-practice framework which applies with or without the certification!
Why experience matters
In this Customer Experience Management Fundamentals course, you’ll learn directly from renowned global CX trainer Daniel Ord from OmniTouch International, one of only 15 CXPA Recognised Training Providers* in the world. As you’ll notice in the testimonials, Daniel is widely recognised as one of the most dynamic, knowledgeable and engaging CX trainers in the business!
Why is that important? By choosing a CXPA Recognised Training Provider*, you are assured that the training you receive is from a provider recognised by CXPA as having the qualifications, skills, and commitment to providing quality Customer Experience training that will enhance your CX knowledge.
So whether it is to prepare for the CCXP exam, or wanting to learn how to develop a CX strategy and use CX to transform your business, this CX Management Fundamentals course ensures you are armed with the practical skills and knowledge on how to immediately start putting the customer at the centre of your business leading to better business outcomes.
*Recognised Training Provider is the current certification – this is not the same as an Authorised Training partner which is an old, outdated status and is no longer valid.
18 Hours of Facilitated Learning (Delivered over 4 x 4.5 Hour Online Sessions)
The truth is there is a lot to learn in Customer Experience Management. Daniel Ord has been training CX courses since 2001 (one of the oldest CX training providers in the world) and our CX management training course has been constantly refined to deliver an optimal training format that provides a perfect balance of theory, practice and most importantly, lots of real-life examples and stories to bring it all to life.
Each course includes a comprehensive manual and we include lots of examples, case studies, frameworks and learnings that will continue to be a great reference point long after the course has been completed.
The CX Fundamentals course is delivered over four consecutive days to maximise learning outcomes as our experience suggests that leaving too much of a break between the sessions dilutes the effectiveness of the training.
Workshop 1. Getting to the Heart of CX
CX isn’t Customer Service. It’s not a better website or even a better buying experience. It’s about transforming the Customer’s perception of everything you are into something meaningful, actionable and tangible. CX Know-How helps make that happen.
Workshop 2. The CX Strategy & Voice of the Customer
Who are we? What do we represent? Do our people know who we are? And who are our Customers? What do they expect? Crafting a CX Strategy that operationalises & supports Organisational strategy and brand and considers the needs of Customers is where it begins.
We listen – we learn. And that means a thorough understanding of listening tools & practices. Quantitative surveys, Qualitative Research, tapping on multiple sources, making insights & results ‘real’ to people through Personas & Journey Maps.
Whether it’s ethnography, social media or a relationship survey, Voice of Customer is how we listen and learn.
Workshop 3. Experience Design & Metrics
When it comes time to innovate or create new experiences, human-centred design helps us come up with solutions we may have never thought of before. It’s not sitting around a table brainstorming.
It’s a stakeholder inclusive approach used to solve problems for humans by including them each step of the way.
And Metrics matter. Because they inform us of the success of our strategy and its implementation. What objectives to choose, how to look at ROI, which experiences to measure, assembling data analytics that make sense and considering how to get action taken across the Organization. These are the elements of Metrics, Measurement & ROI.
Workshop 4. Governance & Culture
Should we have a Chief Customer Officer? If so, what is their domain? What are the characteristics for success? And how can we tell if our Organisation takes Customer Experience seriously – that’s where Governance & Organisational Accountability come in.
It’s the sum of all the formal decisions made by our Organisation around Customer Experience. And it can be seen.
Culture can also be seen. It’s observable. But what goes into crafting & building a Culture that includes Customers? It’s both surprisingly easy and difficult at the same time.
Hiring, Socialisation, Cultural Beliefs, Rewards. Do we treat Customers right because we’re paid to? Or because it’s the right thing to do. That’s where Culture comes in.
The perfect segue to gaining your internationally recognised
Certified Customer Experience Professional (CCXP) credentials.

Who should do this course?
As Customer Experience is still an emerging discipline for most businesses, the course will benefit any role that is looking to learn how to use the Customer Experience as the vehicle to deliver better business outcomes.
Typical roles this course may be suitable for include:
- General Managers & Business owners looking to expand their CX skillset and learn how the various components of CX and how collectively they can be used to transform any business.
- Customer Experience (CX) Managers working towards obtaining the internationally recognised CCXP certification.
- Customer Experience consultants and practitioners looking to validate their mastery and learn some new skills.
- Customer Service/Call Centre Managers wanting to broaden their skillset beyond the call centre.
- Marketing Managers wanting to learn more about how they can influence the customer journey.
Prior to COVID, Daniel would conduct this training course in-person having been a frequent visitor to Australia over the past 20 years. Of course, overseas travel is off the agenda for the short term but the benefits of having a sound CX strategy for businesses has never been greater.
This course has now been adjusted to be delivered online via 4 x 4.5 hour sessions with Daniel conducting each session live from his base in Germany (even though he’s actually American – it’s a long story!).
Recent participants who have completed the online version of this course have still rated it 5 stars and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive with one of the benefits that it provides a chance to pause in-between sessions and allow some of the content to be ‘digested’, facilitating even greater conversations and learnings than would otherwise be possible in the physical course.
Plus you still get to keep up with some of your work although we’re still not convinced that’s a positive!
