 Restrictions

  • Instructors will use DAC endorsed course materials
  • No change is permitted to course materials without written permission from DAC
  • Certified instructors are required to provide feedback on the materials in order to keep our PMI-ACP REP designation
  • All course materials are copyrighted by Disciplined Agile Consortium
  • Once certified, each instructor is allowed to teach as many sessions of training as they want.  However, we expect our students to enjoy a high-quality learning experience, therefore we discourage overly large class sizes.  Our class size is typically 15, but will allow up to 20.  More than 20 students makes it difficult to run effective exercises.  You are free to charge whatever registration fees are reasonable in your area, to cover not only the cost of the instructor and room rental but also the printing of the training manuals and royalties.
