The duration of the DevKickStart program is 6 months, including the coaching material, weekly group-calls and chat support on work days.

2.2. Special Note on Vacations:
As there are only two Coaches and founders at DevKickStart, there will be a few weeks each year when the Coaches are on vacation. During the onboarding process, the Coaches will clearly communicate the DevKickStart’s vacations to the Client. This ensures there will be no confusion about the unsupported weeks.
It is at the discretion of the Coach, out of goodwill, to append his holiday absences to the six months. As a result, the DevKickStart program will end once the extra weeks are over. Therefore, the Client will lose access to the DevKickStart course material.
