IAI and Stencyl LLC would like to announce the launch of an official Stencyl exam and certification program. We invite all organizations, schools and school systems running or considering running Stencyl based game design and game programming classes to  adopt this exam. Individual Stencyl users are also encouraged to sign up and acquire official recognition and certification for their Stencyl skills. Please feel free to do so no matter your skill level, as the bundled courseware covers everything you need to know. Comprehensive courseware is available free of charge to all schools and teachers who adopt the program, through our learning portal. Access is granted to individual learners, teachers and their students after an exam has been booked in advance: http://courseware.stencylexam.com

Testing and Certification Process
The exam is fully integrated into the learning website, so you can opt to take the test as soon as you are ready to do so, once you have nominated a supervisor. If you are taking the exam as part of a class, your teacher is your designated supervisor,  please do not proceed with the exam until they instruct you to do so.
Exam Cost
All exams are charged at the rate of $45 per test, per student. For example, if you had a class of 20 students taking the Stencyl Game Design Specialist exam in one of the April or November testing windows, the total cost would be $900. You will receive complete access to the comprehensive courseware on our learning portal once a exam has been booked. Payments can be made easily through Paypal on the automated booking system on the exam website: http://stencylexam.com/order/. If you are an individual, you can register simply and instantly on the course landing pages through the links below, using PayPal (which also accepts Credit Card payments).
