Fast Track CDA Formal Training Hours Certificate

The Fast Track CDA provides working child development professionals a convenient and flexible way to complete the formal training hours.

A CDA Formal Training Hours Certificate will provide you 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.

The online format consists of five seven-week classes which cover the core set of competency standards required for the CDA Credential. These standards guide early care professionals as they work toward becoming qualified teachers of young children

Please note that GRCC does not award the CDA Credential, nor does it have a role in determining pass/fail criteria.
