Austin, TX Based Startup Launches Gamification Certification Program

Sententia and Monica Cornetti Launch Gamification Certification Program for Talent Development Professionals

The Sententia Gamification Certification for Talent Development Professionals establishes an internationally-accepted level of knowledge, education and experience in gamification by which talent development leaders will be recognized within the learning and development community.


Sententia, a global consortium of gamification professionals, and Monica Cornetti, rated as a #1 Gamification Guru in the world, have launched a gamification certification program designed to educate and equip Talent Development Professionals in the use of gamification as an engagement strategy.

The Certification is designed to establish an internationally-accepted level of knowledge, education and experience with gamification by which talent development leaders will be recognized within the learning and development community. The Certification comprises three levels that include training, research, case studies, assessments, and a comprehensive final design project.

Additionally, the curriculum is backed by a body of knowledge collected from gamification and learning leaders around the globe, and provides a unique training program designed to make the business of learning better. The certification targets individuals who currently design or lead learning functions in organizations, or provide learning services to companies or corporate learning departments of colleges and universities.

“The Sententia certification program prepares HR and L&D professionals to lead the change in the design and delivery of corporate learning programs, which have a long-standing record of failing to meet desired outcomes,” said Monica Cornetti, Founder of EntrepreNow! an international training company. “When we design programs with a smart gamification strategy,” she said, “those same learning programs are changed from dull and boring into engaging and fun.” She continued, “And the organization has the added benefit of clear, measurable outcomes, and proof of positive behavior changes.”

“For too long too many organizations have adopted a “hit and miss” strategy, rather than a planned, monitored, and integrated approach to identifying, engaging, leveraging, developing, and evaluating training programs – the Sententia certification program is going to change that,” asserted Cornetti.

The Sententia accreditation process assures that students and craft professionals receive quality gamification training based on uniform standards and criteria. This process fosters international unity among the gamification industry while providing a defined aptitude path with industry-recognized credentials

As an early adopter of gamification, Cornetti and EntrepreNow! have been designing and delivering gamification programs for clients since 2008.

“I am honored to now be a part of the founding group of Sententia,” said Cornetti. “Sententia is the ONLY organization to offer a gamification certification for Human Resource and Talent Development specialists that is recognized and approved by HRCI, SHRM, and ATD for recertification credits,” she continued. “That’s HUGE for professionals who have invested time and resources in their own continuing education and have worked to earn credibility and recognition in their specific field of expertise.”
