Hi all,
I'm looking for a certification program that I can do after hours... I like
the look of HFI's CUA, but it requires being onsite at seminars. I need a
self-study certification - human factors, UI, etc. Any recommendations?
Thanks!

HFI's CUA course is a very good training program. But it's not an actual
certification.

The Board of Certification in Professional Ergonomics
(http://www.bcpe.org/) offers a certification in Human Factors. This
seems to be the most popular HF certification.

The BCPE site also lists university programs that have been "accredited"
by the HFES and the UK-based Ergonomics Society. See here:

HTH,
