The Call for Discipleship:
I'd like to ask you a very important question: Are you a disciple of Jesus?
I don't know what your answer may be to this important question. If your answer is "no," I'm going to ask you "why not?" But if your answer is "yes," I congratulate you for being a disciple of Jesus. However, I will like to ask further: where did you learn to be a disciple of Jesus? Before you answer that, I do not expect you to say at your Sunday school or believer's class, or better still in seminary or bible college, etc. We don't become a disciple of Jesus in those places, we only become a faithful and committed member of the denomination; learning their doctrines, traditions, etc So, where or how did you become a disciples of Jesus?
If you have never been discipled, you are not a disciple
it is interesting to know that a disciple is a trained person. Not trained by a system, organization, or someone for someone else. A disciple is a learner, a follower, pupil, student, or apprentice of someone. This is where the term disciple of Jesus comes in. If someone or a system is training you to be a disciple of Jesus, you will become the disciple of that person or that system. Jesus however appointed someone to be the only person to disciple people for Him: "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you" (John 14:26). He said further: “The anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” (1Jn 2:27).
This is where you will find the difference between this Discipleship Training and any other academic, religious, or Bible training programs you know of. In these programs, men still train men, and men try to say what God tries to says (theology). But in this Discipleship Training, you learn directly from the Holy Spirit who is your teacher and will teach you all things.

There is no formal examination, but there are occasional quizzes and questions at the end of each class and course to determine understanding and concentration.
