Our
Qualification Levels

As a continuous learner, you want to make progress toward mastery. You want to see that you’re gaining knowledge and experience and that you are increasing your value on the market. That’s why all Shiftup programs consist of five levels.

  • Booster – Level 1 – 640 points
  • Advancer – Level 2 – 1600 points
  • Professional – Level 3 – 3200 points
  • Expert – Level 4 – 6400 points
  • Master – Level 5 – 9600 points

As a learner, you earn points by doing things that we expect from professionals, such as reading articles, doing exercises, playing (serious) games, participating in meetups, watching videos, attending webinars, and much more. These are different activity types and you earn points in different roles. The points you earn accumulate toward objectives. You finish a level and earn a diploma when you earned the minimum number of points for each objective.

The total duration per level depends on how much time you can set aside. The Booster level typically takes between two to fourteen days. Achieving the Master level might take anywhere between a few months to an entire year.

Tip: for faster progress through your selected program, check out some of our self-paced workshops.

Our qualification programs are progressive journeys. You can get points for each level simultaneously, but you have to complete a level before finishing the next one. For example, we don’t offer you a Professional diploma if you haven’t also earned Booster and Advancer.
