    Yes, I think they have in mind the MORS certification. There are also very, very few college-level wargaming courses.

    “Successfully completed an industry standard wargaming or gamification certification at the Journeyman level or higher.”
    Are there such things?
    I guess so, e.g. the MORS certificate but they cannot be common… and what defines a Journeyman level?
