Child Development Associate Preparation

The non-credit-bearing CDA is offered through NPRC Workforce Development. This 120-hour course focuses on the CDA Essentials textbook and portfolio preparation and is offered over a 14-week schedule with a combination of remote class participation and independent study.

Students who successfully complete this course will be well prepared to take the CDA exam and complete their verification visit. The hours completed in this course will be earned and recorded in the Pennsylvania Professional Development Registry (the statewide Early Childhood Education Workforce Registry).

Students who are granted the CDA Credential by the Council for Professional Recognition may apply for prior learning credit toward an Associate of Applied Science in Early Childhood Education. This prior learning credit may be used to satisfy program requirements in ECE 110: Introduction to Early Childhood Education (3 credits) and ECE 118: Family Involvement and Collaboration (3 credits).
