Child Development Associate (CDA) Credentials Training Classes

What is a CDA?  The national CDA Credential is the most well-recognized certification program in early childhood education and a stepping stone to growing as a professional in the Early Childhood Education field. 

Earning your CDA involves completing a multi-step program that requires other tasks to be completed in addition to the 120-hours of continuing education.  Read more about the Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential program in our introductory guide or visit the CDA Council website to learn more about the process.

As a Proud Partner to the CDA Council, our goal is to provide you with the best training and support to help you in achieving your initial Child Development Associate® (CDA) Credentials or renewal.  We're also an IACET Accredited Provider, so all our classes earn CEUs and meet the CDA Council's requirements for continuing education.

We offer the initial 120-hour, an 80-hr core and the 45-hr renewal training packages, with either pre-selected classes for your specific CDA setting type or with classes you choose.  Here's some guidance on how to select the package that's best for you.
