CDA Application (DCIU 1)
Time & Location
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 hours completed. Due to COVID-19, CDA courses through CCPN are currently being offered in a variety of formats, including online and hybrid.
The original $100.00 Registration fee has been waived!
Please note the following about the course:
The fees for this course are non-refundable except in the case that the course is cancelled.
Online courses will be either self-paced with occasional Zoom meetings, or will meet in weekly sessions on Zoom. Hybrid courses will have the option to meet in person for weekly classes, or attend those classes virtually. Face-to-face courses may convert to Online/Hybrid if safety guidelines change.
As the course progresses, your instructor will guide you through the portfolio process, voucher application process, and will communicate updates from the CDA council on testing and verification visits (observations).
All candidates who successfully complete the course will receive 120 credit hours on the PA PD Registry. Candidates who do not supply a valid PA Keys Registry ID # on their application may not receive credit for the course. Candidates will be able to log in to their PD Registry account and view their hours once the course is complete. Any pending payments, assignments, information, etc. from the candidate may delay the candidate from receiving their hours.
All candidates must be able to successfully obtain criminal record, child abuse, FBI clearances, complete mandated reporter child abuse training, and pediatric first aid and CPR.
CDA ASSESSMENT FEE
Upon successful completion of the course there is an additional $425.00 assessment fee. (This is separate from the fees to take the CDA Prep Course; this fee is charged by the CDA Council, not CCPN.) It can be covered with a voucher (grant) for STAR 1 or higher programs. Your instructor will guide you through the voucher process.
