Octalysis Certification

Are you looking to apply your gamification skills and put them to the test? Submit for your Octalysis Certificate and see if you have what it takes to earn this prestigious symbol of accomplishment to showcase on LinkedIn etc. The Octalysis Certificate is the official badge of honor by Yu-kai and his team to validate that you have the proper understanding and skills to wield the Octalysis Framework.

Many other cerfiticates only require taking an easy multiple-choice quiz (sometimes after a $1000+ payment). The Octalysis Certificate is earned by submitting a free form design, following the Octalysis Strategy Dashboard, an Octalysis Analysis and Brainstorming. This is the type of work and discipline that true experts and designers use in real life projects to improve the world.

With the Octalysis Certification program you have the opportunity to get official feedback from an expert to learn from and help you on your path to mastery. To fully prepare for this challenge you will need the Certification Preparation document, more information on how to obtain it can be found at the bottom of this page.
