Individuals who want to become an expert in the field of crafting Vested agreements can choose to become a Vested Certified Deal Architect. The Certified Deal Architect Program is ideal for individuals responsible for more than one deal, or consultants and lawyers who assist companies with their deals.
Certified Deal Architects must complete all three of the University of Tennessee’s Vested courses, including:
- 3-Day Open Enrollment Course
- Creating a Vested Agreement Online Course
- 2-Day Collaborative Contracting Course
Participants are required to demonstrate their Vested competency by submitting a project that shows they can effectively apply their skills to create a Vested agreement. A key part of the Certified Deal Architect program is a hands-on review and coaching from a University of Tennessee Vested program faculty member, who will work with participants to review their projects and guide them during implementation.
* The courses listed above have individual tuitions not included in the CDA Program tuition.
