CDA 2.0 Verification Visit

 

During the Visit, the Specialist will use the newly-revised Comprehensive Scoring Instrument to determine Competency Recommendations in each of the thirteen Functional Areas, using a combination of Portfolio evidence and observable criteria. The Specialist will then submit the Competency Recommendation Scores to the Council online. These scores, along with the Exam score, will be combined by the Council into a final Cumulative Score which will determine the credentialing decision.
