About this Course

For students who want to enroll in Child Development Associate (CDA) preparatory coursework. Candidates who complete this course will have the knowledge they need for the CDA Assessment, as well as 120 clock hours completed. Successful students of the course will then proceed to do their CDA Assessment and Observation before receiving their CDA Credential.

This course is instructed online and a link to the course will be sent after registration is complete. It is instructed at an accelerated pace (less than 30 weeks) which means students should expect to handle a greater workload in a shorter than normal time. It is instructed in a self-paced manner, however the instructor will provide structure to the course content and may organize occasional meetings with students to provide explain course content, ask about student progress, and answer any questions.
