about us

Corporate training

Training By Doing is an Axure approved training service of Cognitive Ink, a Sydney based Strategy, Research and Design Studio. We are based in Australia and New Zealand and our trainers are some of the first to be appointed in Oceania. We have been teaching Axure for 7 years and have used Axure in our own work since its earliest releases. Over this time, we have delivered hundreds of onsite organisational training courses and one-on-one mentoring sessions onsite with organisational clients across Australia and New Zealand. Past training clients include: Australian Department of Jobs and Small Business, Australian Tax Office, Australian Bureau of Statistics, Danone, AusTrade and more.



Our Services

The training was enjoyable and tailored to cater for those who had never used it before through to those who had used it for years. The knowledge imparted on us made working with the tool easier and left us excited about what we can achieve. I would strongly recommend Christopher and his team to anyone needing Axure training.

Axure refresher course

For people that have already completed one of our beginner to advanced courses, who would like to refresh and/or improve their existing Axure prototyping skills. The Axure Refresher Course is custom built to your needs. We introduce new features in Axure 9 as well as refresh your existing prototyping skills.

Chris is very knowledgeable and skilled, very engaging and interesting to listen to and explains each step with a lot of precision. The course was highly practical and hands-on, the best way to learn!

I went from not having any experience with Axure to feeling as though I could produce prototypes effectively within a day.
