The Child Development Associate (CDA) is a 120 hour credential for early childhood teachers. To start the process you need to download our assessment tool to document the approved child care training courses that you have completed.

If you have at least 90 hours of training accepted by your state regulating authority, you should consider our 30 hour CDA Bridge course. It focuses on the competency standards, resource collection and test preparation needed to earn your CDA credential. We also address childhood obesity, special needs and professionalism. The CDA 2.0 30 Hour Bridge course launched on August 1, 2013.

Once you complete the document email it to admin@getyourcdaonline.com. We will review your course work and provide recommendations on the best approach to complete your CDA.
