Have you already earned the Sententia Level 1 certificate? Continue your journey directly into the Level 2 Journeyman program!
Today's talent development professional needs a wide variety of skills to lead behavior change, map learner journeys, and engage the workforce. Gamification can help you develop all of these skills, and more!
SEWI-ATD is proud to bring back Sententia Gamification with two convenient options to develop your skills. Take the Level 1 Gamification Apprentice certification to learn gamification fundamentals, or accelerate your progress by earning both your Level 1 and Level 2 Journeyman certifications. Just for SEWI-ATD, Sententia is offering both options as a blended virtual program that you can take without having to leave the office!
This hands-on certification takes you through Sententia's trademarked and proven process of gamifiying your organizational quest. You'll apply the Game the System model to gamify learning design, gather data, and participate in problem-solving and assessment exercises. By following the 5-step plan, you are essentially assured a successful outcome.
This is a blended virtual workshop. Level 1 webinar sessions will occur on February 28, March 3, and March 6, with the Level 2 certification continuing on March 10, 13, 20, 27, and April 3, 10, and 17. You can choose to attend each session live or watch the session recording within afterwards.
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.
The Level 1 certification is 6 contact hours; the combined track adds an additional 12 contact hours (for 18 hours of total session time).
You save with the combined program! Sententia is offering a special $50 discount to people who sign up for both Level 1 and Level 2 certifications—on top of the already-reduced price for SEWI-ATD members! It's never been more affordable or more convenient to become a gamification guru!
In Level 1, you'll master the five foundational steps in gamifying your learning programs:
By choosing to accelerate your development with the combined program, you'll also implement the full Sententia Gamification Design Framework, including:
The Level 1 certification will prepare you to implement gamification in your own learning experiences. By taking the deep dive with the combined certificate path, you'll also learn how to engage your learners based on their personalities, overcome your own blind spots, and leverage game mechanics in an integrated way to drive your learner journey.
Sententia Gamification has been teaching gamification techniques to L&D professionals, HR leaders, and educational institutions since 2008.

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.
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.

Even though Winter can seemingly last forever (if February was 30+ days, we may all just go bonkers), March 13 will be here before you know it! If you attended our Training Delivery Professional Development Network (TD PDN) meeting in December, you know that our next topic will be What’s in Your Toolkit?!? We want everyone who attends to come ready to share the best of what they bring to set-up the room for successful training and/or to create an engaging environment.
To make it really fun, we would like to invite you to what we're calling The Dollar Store Challenge! The idea is to bring 10 of a specific item you use to make learning fun and sticky for your learners (yes, you may have to spend up to $10, however, buying more isn't necessary and is optional if you already have 10 items to share).
For example: Andy will be bringing 10 dollar-store-quality beach balls (<$9 on Amazon) that he uses to get people talking in class .
When you bring your 10 items, we'll all swap them for 10 different items and come away with 10 new ways to engage our learners and build our toolkits. It will be like a cookie exchange for learning tools!
Please come prepared to (briefly) demonstrate how you use inexpensive items to make learning memorable for the people you train. It should be a blast, and we’ll even have prizes for the most unique items and ideas.
We want to express a huge "thank you," to Suzanne Goreki and our host, Tri City National Bank, in Oak Creek!
A call for additional venues:
We are also seeking hosts for our 2020 Summer, Autumn, and Winter TD PDN meetings. If you know of an organization (yours?) that would be willing to host a TD PDN meeting, we’d love to hear from you! Please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a potential meeting space. Remaining 2020 dates include June 12, September 11, and December 11, each running from 8–10:30 am. To set space expectations, we've had as many as 60 people attend in the past.
Finally, we have the results from the December TD PDN meeting, here. Thank you to all who contributed their wonderfully engaging icebreakers and energizers, and keep the ideas coming. We’ll all be better for it if we share and learn from this amazing community of trainers!
All the best from your TD PDN leaders,
Jennifer Buchholz, Sue Keith and Andy Marris
