Still need to earn your Level 1 Gamification Apprentice certificate? Enroll in the combined certification series so you can still take advantage of this opportunity!

SEWI-ATD is excited to bring back Sententia Gamification so you can take the next step in your gamification journey. The Level 2 Journeyman certification extends your skills into persona mapping, game theory, behavioral tracking, game mechanics, and UX/UI. These new skills will help you increase employee engagement, change behaviors, and bring fun to your learning programs.

Sententia is offering their Level 2 Journeyman certification as a blended virtual program with your quests available to you anywhere and at any time. The blended modality provides an ideal adult learning environment as you experience the gamification mechanics, receive feedback on your progress, develop your skills, earn recognition, and build confidence in your ability to overcome design challenges.

This hands-on and self-directed class takes you through the 7-stage Sententia Gamification Design Framework. By the end of this 12-contact-hour certification program, through their proven reverse-engineering process, you will be able to map the Sententia Gamification Design Framework to a case study, assess best practices, and demonstrate applied competence in the application of gamification strategy design to a talent development case study or a program of your own.


This is a blended virtual workshop. Webinar sessions will occur on seven days: March 10, 13, 20, 27, and April 3, 10, and 17. You can choose to attend each session live or watch the session recording afterwards. Each session will be one hour, with approximately 2 hours of independent study between sessions.

This workshop will be very interactive. You'll experience virtual sessions with Gamification Master Craftsmen, group discussions and chats, case studies, analysis and assessment, team activities, videos, audios, white papers, and other ancillary tools to guide you on your journey.

Discounted Bonus Refresher

To help you get the most out of this program, Sententia is offering a special discounted refresher version of their Level 1 certification. You can attend their level 1 certification virtually for just an additional $49. See how the experience changes when delivered virtually so you can improve your own online delivery skills, or just re-experience the foundational content so you can hit the ground running in your level 2 certification. The refresher will occur in the same virtual blended format, on February 28, March 3, and March 6.
