This is the governing body for certification in Disciplined Agile.

Disciplined Agile Certifications:

The Disciplined Agile Certification program is a principled approach based on the Shu-Ha-Ri philosophy of learning.  We believe that there is both value in, and limits to, certification. Any certification should clearly reflect the effort you had to invest to "earn" it.  Sadly, there are many agile certifications that do not reflect this approach - One can become a "certified master" after staying awake in a two day workshop or a "professional" for passing an online test.  With us you're recognized as a beginner when you pass an online test (Shu - Certified Disciplined Agilist).  Show that you have some experience and you're recognized as an intermediate (Ha - Certified Disciplined Agile Practitioner).  Prove that you have deep experience and are actively helping others to become better and you could become recognized as an expert mentor (Ri - Certified Disciplined Agilist Coach).  If you have experience and are willing to share your passion, you could become a trusted Instructor (Ri - Certified Disciplined Agile Instructor).
