Community Reminders

January 27, 2021

Important New Date: We are accepting online training through June 1, 2021, to meet the First Aid and Infant and Child CPR requirement for initial and renewal CDA applications.

Application Reminder: The Council continues to accept paper applications but strongly encourages you to submit an online application as we are still experiencing postal delays. Current processing time for paper applications is 6-8 weeks. Applying online is cheaper, faster and easy. For your convenience we have short, easy-to-understand tutorials that walk you through each step of the online application process.

Apply for your CDA® or renew your credential today.

YourCouncil—New Feature: The Council is always looking for new ways we can ensure the quality of the CDA credential. So, we now require CDA candidates to confirm their verification visit has been completed. On the day of their visit, a candidate will receive an email immediately after the visit is scheduled to end. The email will prompt them to log into their account and complete the confirmation process. PD Specialists will not be able to submit the results of visits until candidates complete the confirmation process.
