We offer two levels of certification for each course.
All students who complete our training receive a Certificate of Completion.
Those who wish to achieve formal qualifications and opt to write the online exams can earn their Certificate of Mastery.
Certificates of Completion
Our first level of certification verifies that students completed our classes.
Classroom completion is verified through attendance records, while online completion is verified through content completion logs.
When our records show someone participated but we cannot verify course completion, we issue a Certificate of Participation. These do not include the hours of instruction as this cannot be verified.
Students who complete our training can earn the following Certificates of Completion or Participation:
DBC Certificate of Completion
19.5 hours of classroom instruction or 15 hours of online lessons.
EDP Certificate of Completion
13 hours of classroom instruction or 10 hours of online lessons.
ABD Certificate of Participation/Completion
Integrated into the classroom edition or online 13.5 hours of online lessons.
To earn completion certification, students must complete all templates and submit a final prototype. Otherwise, certificates of participation are issued.
Certificates of Mastery (optional)
To demonstrate mastery of applied digital psychology and behavioral design, you can write the test to earn your Certificate of Mastery.
They are issued on successfully passing the written test with verification of course completion or participation.
All courses include 3 attempts to pass each test.
These are the 3 Certificates of Mastery:
Digital Behavior Change Certificate (DBCC)
Pass the 90-item test with a 60% passing grade.
Emotional Design Psychology Certificate (EDPC)

Each certificate issued by our school is verified and given a unique ID that can be validated by any 3rd party.
Certificates include a unique Credential ID, course title, issue date, and description of criteria for achievement.
