Any class or certification in UX does not make you a UX design professional. It does however give you the tools to become one. The best UX people have a good grasp on knowing when to do which activities to get the desired outcome. This is only something that can be gained through experience and mentorship.
Should you become a UX designer?

Yesss 100% agree. I came from the ga immersive course with a background in architectural design. I felt as though it gave us the core principles and overview of ux in theory but there’s so much more too it which can only be gained through situational learning. I do worry about the over saturation of people coming out of these courses now because it’s going to become harder and harder for them to get their foot in the door. They need companies willing to give them the opportunity to grow. Great article! :)
