In order to properly complete your application process, you will need to find a PD Specialist nearest you to conduct your Verification Visit. To assist you with this process, we have created the Find-A-PDSpecialist Online Directory. Using your workplace zip code, the directory will show you all of the PD Specialists in your area. Once you locate a PD Specialist near you, you must fill out a contact request form for the PD Specialist you've chosen. Once the PD Specialist confirms and accepts your request, you can then add their Council designated PD Specialist ID# to your application. Learn how to search the directory OR Use the link below to start your search:
Your Profile in the PD Specialist Portal is directly linked with the online Find-A-PDSpecialist Directory. As an active PD Specialst you may access the PD Specialist portal anytime and update your profile, and opt-in or opt-out of being in the online directory. There you may upload your photo and promote your PD Specialist services by including a public statement of your choice directed to the CDA Candidates.
