How to Certify:

  1. Everyone starts at the beginning Everyone starts either as a Disciplined Agilist or a Certified Disciplined Agilist.  
  2. Everyone must fulfill the certification requirements.  See the chart below. If there are no courses scheduled in your area, you may register on the DAC website to view any of our Member Webinars.  When you have fully viewed at least one webinar on Webex, please Contact Us.  Once confirmed you will be granted your Disciplined Agilist designation.
  3. Apply for membership.  Once you have fulfilled the requirements for the certification level that you are applying for, apply for membership (see below).                        
  4. Wait for verification:
    • If you have taken any accredited training, you may apply to be a Disciplined Agilist.
    • If you pass the Certified Disciplined Agilist test, you will receive a PDF certificate via email indicating that you passed.  You then need to apply for CDA membership, which will be processed within three business days.  Congratulations!
    • If you don't pass the test, fear not.  There is the opportunity to test again, perhaps with additional studying.
      •  If you have paid for the CDA test but did not pass, you may apply to be a Disciplined Agilist.
  5. Participate actively in the DAD community.  Our members are building great discussion forums and other resources for you to take advantage of - get involved!
