A CDA Formal Training Hours Certificate provides students with the formal training hour requirements necessary to apply to the Council for Professional Recognition for the Infant/Toddler, Preschool, Family Child Care or Home Visitor Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential. The CDA Credential is based on a core set of competency standards, which guide early care professionals as they work toward becoming qualified teachers of young children. This program is designed to provide early childhood professionals who are already working in the role associated with the credential. This program provides a convenient flexible way to complete the formal training hours while working. Please note that GRCC does not award the CDA Credential, nor does it have a role in determining pass/fail criteria.
This program is not eligible for Federal Financial Aid.
