CDA Training Package
CDA Training - CDA Training Course List
There is a total of 120 hours of courses. The curriculum for the 120 hours of training is completely online. There are no text books or materials to print out.
The 120 hours is compiled of child care courses that are 1 to 3 hours each, they are self -paced courses and can be saved and resumed during any point in the course. There is a 10 question test at the end of each course. The questions on the test are completely based on the materials covered in that specific course. The student must get 70% or better to pass the test. If 70% is not achieved, then the training system automatically takes the student back through the course to review the materials that were missed on the test. The student may take the test as many times as needed to pass.
If the student enrolls in the complete CDA training package, the 120 hours of training must be complete within one year.
If you are concerned about completing it in one year, then you may want to consider enrolling in the program with the payment plan (pay-as-you-go). The payment plan allows the student to pay for the program one module at a time, and the courses for each module are added to the student training platform at the time of payment. Access to the courses are one year from the date which they are added to the training platform.
The CDA training does not have a final test after completing the 120 hours. However, there is an additional process to obtain a CDA Credential.
