What if not enough people have signed up for the course?

Two weeks before each training, we will check if we have enough participants for the training course to be valuable and continue. If this is not the case, we will inform you by e-mail, with options for a new date and location. After this notification, you will have the right to cancel or change your registration within 5 working days.

How can I pay?

On the website you can choose to pay via iDeal, creditcard or by invoice with a payment period of 30 days.

Which languages do you offer your courses in?

Most of our courses are available in both English and Dutch. We have a selection of training courses which are only available in English, which will be on that training page. Our rule of thumb for courses in the Netherlands is – the course is in English unless everybody speaks Dutch, then the course is in Dutch. If you want to be sure you are in a Dutch course, please get in touch with academy@devon.nl in case the information on a specific date is not available on the course page.

What do the costs include?

Unless mentioned otherwise, the course fee includes the cost of training material, exam cost, the use of the location, catering and parking.

Only one or two locations are visible. How is that possible?

When you click on the orange arrow, the menu will unfold further. More locations and dates might appear.

Is VAT included in the prices shown?

The costs that apply to our programs initiated from the Netherlands are exempt from sales tax as per Article 11-1-o of the 1968 Sales Tax Act. In other locations/countries, the prices shown are excluding VAT, which will be added.

Can I still register for the training?

Is the ‘register’ headline visible? This means you can register and attend the training. Does the headline say ‘full’? Give us a call and we’ll try and help you out!

What language is the course material in?

All course material for the open registrations is in English.

When will I receive my exam code?

If you are doing the PSD (Scrum.org) or one of the certified DevOps Institute trainings, you will receive your exam code on the final day of the training.
