If you are an ECE professional in Maryland and are interested in becoming a PD Specialist, we especially urge you to apply. The Council has been awarded a $1 million grant that covers the cost of credentialing fees and books. As a result, we expect the demand to soar for PD Specialists who can assist Maryland candidates on their journey to becoming CDAs.
We encourage you to spread the word about this meaningful career opportunity to members of your ECE network. So, share our PDS recruitment brochure with them in either English or Spanish.
The Council will review all applications and inform applicants of their decision. The Council for Professional Recognition does not discriminate based on race, color, religion, creed, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation or military status in CDA PD Specialist operations, processes and policies.
