Level 1 Gamification Apprentice Certification Content Overview
The ONLY Gamification Certification that can earn you recertification* credits with HRCI, SHRM, and ATD.
This hands-on workshop takes you through the 5-step trademarked and proven 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 altruism. 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 System™ model for gamification learning design, gather data, and participate in problem-solving and assessment exercises.
Module 1: Define Learning Objectives... The Fundamentals of Fun!
Module 2: It's Story Time - Create an Epic Adventure
Module 3: Design Variety into Your Activities
Module 4: Add the Game Design and Mechanics
Module 5: Tally up the Aesthetics So They Wanna Play!
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, with the aim of achieving the objectives identified in Module 1 by applying the gamification design overlay.
The goal is to increase learning and engagement through key concepts found in game design and behavioral psychology. By adding game mechanics to training, gamification not only increases interest, it makes training "fun." A well-designed and well-implemented gamification program promotes engagement, meaning, mastery, and autonomy. Upon completion of the Level 1 Certification the Gamification Apprentice will demonstrate an introductory understanding of all components used to apply the Game the System™ gamification design overlay to an L&D program.

Level 1 -- Gamification Apprentice - NO CODING SKILLS REQUIRED
An individual who has earned a Level 1- Gamification Apprentice Certification has received introductory training and demonstrates the necessary understanding of the fundamentals of gamification as it applies to the 5-step process of gamifiying an organizational quest (training and development program) within an organization. The Gamification Apprentice has completed basic training in the 5-step Game the System™ model for gamification learning design, gathered data, participated in problem-solving exercises, analyzed case studies, and added their personal experiences to the exploration process.
A Gamification Apprentice typically has a basic knowledge of gamification, but has not designed or led projects on their own.
