This is the governing body for certification in Disciplined Agile.


Being a Certified Disciplined Agilist (CDA) indicates to colleagues and employers that you have fundamental knowledge about Disciplined Agile strategies and that you are eager to learn and increase your skills and abilities as a software professional.

How to Become a Certified Disciplined Agilist (CDA)




Step #1: Learn About Disciplined Agile

To learn about the Disciplined Agile framework sufficiently, we suggest that you do at least one of:

Step #2: Take the Certification Test

The test is 25 multiple selection questions based solely on material from the workshops listed in the Learn section and book Choose Your WoW! To pass the test you will need to have read the book or attended one of the workshops.  We suggest that you read How to Pass the Test before taking it.

The test fee is $200 USD, payable via PayPal or credit card. 
Once you have passed the test, your CDA designation is valid for a 1 year period. In order to retain your certification, you must meet the then-current retention requirements.   

If you have not previously taken a DA test, you will be required to "Register to get started".
Please use the same email as you will for your Disciplined Agile Membership.
