What are NuggetGames?
Each NuggetGames is a month-long competition that challenges you to train your best, earn points, and try to land at the top of the leaderboard. The more tasks you complete, the more points you earn. The more points you earn, the higher you'll be ranked on our global leaderboard. The top 100 learners win prizes from CBT Nuggets.

How do NuggetGames work?
NuggetGames are about learning your best, earning the most points and climbing your way up the NuggetGames leaderboard. Participants can earn points by watching videos, earning Validated Minutes, and answering Kaplan® IT Training practice exam questions. Earn one (1) point per minute watched, three (3) points per practice exam question answered correctly, and five (5) points per validated minute earned.
How do I earn Validated Minutes for the competition?
When you take in-video quizzes during CBT Nuggets courses and answer questions correctly, you earn Validated Minutes. For example, if you watch two minutes of a video and correctly answer the associated quiz question, you earn two Validated Minutes. You can also earn Validated Minutes by taking the quizzes without watching the video. Learn more about Validated Minutes here.
