This program is like no virtual conference or Zoom workshop you’ve attended. The Sententia Gamification Certification is a complete immersion experience that leaves you creatively inspired and technically masterful. Plus, this is the ONLY Gamification Certification that earns you  recertification* credits for your CPLP!

This hands-on certification takes you through the 5-step, trademarked, and proven process of gamifying your organizational quest. The goal is to increase learning and engagement through key concepts found in game design and behavioral psychology. Adding game mechanics to training, gamification not only increases interest, but it also increases engagement and creates behavioral change by making learning and development "fun."

Gamification is not just about rewarding points and badges, but rather understanding and influencing the human behaviors which companies want to encourage among their employees and customers.

Is now a good time to put an end to dry, boring learning? Get ready to play full out during our Gamification adventure!


In this 8-hour certification program, you will use a L&D case study as you overlay the 5-step Game the System™ model for gamification learning design, gather data, and participate in problem-solving and assessment exercises


At the end of this Certification program, participants will be able to:

    •    Understand how key concepts found in behavioral psychology and game design can increase learning and engagement

    •    Have a five-part process for gamifying a learning program

    •    Demonstrate a return on investment for your gamified learning program

2.    All handouts and ancillary tools used during the certification
