Level 1 Gamification Certification for Talent Development Professionals

The ONLY Gamification Certification that earns you recertification credits with HRCI, SHRM, and ATD.


This program is for L&D and HR professionals interested in using gamification to improve their learning and training programs.



Spend a day learning from the #1 rated Gamification Guru Monica Cornetti and become a better, higher-rated, and considerably more effective trainer, teacher, instructional designer, or human resource professional!

This program is like no conference or workshop you’ve attended. The Sententia Gamification LIVE Certification is a complete immersion experience designed to leave you creatively inspired and technically masterful.

Be prepared to come and PLAY FULL OUT for the entire day to dramatically improve your learning and development results and significantly increase your credibility and influence and a professional.

Simply defined, gamification uses game mechanics and rewards for non-game applications in order to increase engagement, transfer knowledge, and create loyalty. Gamification is about motivational design, and is the process of using game mechanics and game thinking in non-gaming contexts to engage users and to solve problems.

Gamification is founded in the fundamentals of human psychology and behavioral science, and rests on three primary factors: motivation, ability level, and triggers.

Gamification is not about simply rewarding points and badges, but rather understanding and influencing the human behaviors which companies want to encourage among their employees and customers. Gamification includes a robust set of game mechanics including chance, competition, collaboration, knowledge sharing, badges, points, leaderboards, status, achievement, exploration, teamwork, and so much more.


This trademarked, proven program takes you through the 5-step process of

gamifiying your organizational quest. By following the 5-step plan, you are

essentially assured a successful outcome.

Game mechanics such as points, levels, challenges, rewards, chance,

collaboration, scarcity, time limits, and leaderboards are directly linked to the

human desires of achievement, status, self-expression, competition, and


These mechanics (and more) provide an ideal adult learning environment as

learners practice their skills, get immediate feedback on their progress, earn

recognition, and build confidence in their ability to overcome a challenge.

In this 6-hour certification program you will use L&D case studies as you overlay

the 5-step Game the SystemTM model for gamification learning design, gather

data, and participate in problem-solving and assessment exercises.


Module 1: Define Learning Objectives... The Fundamentals of Fun! - Define

your measurable business objectives and determine how gamification will

help you to achieve your objectives

Module 2: It's Story Time - Create an Epic Adventure - Frame and wrap your

quest in a spellbinding story to create a narrative thread that pulls

through the entire game

Module 3: Design Variety into Your Activities - Create the right mix of

ingredients in your learning activities to allow the participants to acquire

knowledge and skill, rather than merely receive and memorize


Module 4: Add the Game Design and Mechanics - Identify the game elements

you will use (points, badges, leaderboards, etc.) and implement game

mechanics to motivate your players

Module 5: Tally up the Aesthetics So They Wanna Play! - Create an overall

design that appeals to different senses and tie everything back to the

other four levels, especially the business objectives

Module 6: Gamification Audit of Organization Quest - The gamification audit will

clearly define recommendations on the creative design, development,

communications strategy, and roll-out plan for the gamification project

presented in class. The aim is to achieve the objectives identified in

Module 1 by applying the gamification design overlay and answer the

question: Is it fun?


At the end of this session, 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.
