Do you have staff with an expired CDA?

Do you want them to get it renewed quickly and easily?

Let T/TAS help you!  The Council for Professional Recognition has a CDA Renewal Amnesty program in place for individuals who had earned a CDA credential AFTER January 1, 2007 and the credential is now expired. You now have the opportunity to renew your credential WITHOUT going through the full CDA process. The Amnesty program is only available until December 29, 2017. See the Council website for more information at https://www.cdacouncil.org/renewal-amnesty-program.

Here’s How T/TAS Can Help You!  T/TAS can provide online training that meets the requirements for the 45 clock hours, and will also include Continuing Education Units (CEU) for your CDA Renewal. This training will actually provide individuals with a total of 48 clock hours and 4.8 CEUs.  Training modules are appropriate for anyone renewing, whether they have an Infant/Toddler Setting, Preschool Setting, Family Child Care setting or a Home-Visitor setting CDA! Training certificates for clock hours and CEU credit will be sent for documentation upon successful completion of the two training modules. 

In addition, we can provide assistance via phone, email, or other technology to individuals on the five required steps of the process.
