Your CDA Credential is valid for three years from the award date, and it must be renewed before it expires. A CDA Credential may only be renewed for the original setting, age-level endorsement, and specialization. Save money buy enrolling in this packet instead of paying for each online class individually. When you enroll, you will be given access to classes in our catalog of online classes that are relevant for the CDA setting that you choose for renewal.
Please note: Child Care Lounge only offers the classes and does NOT grant the CDA credential or CDA renewal! You must follow the requirements set forth by the Council for Professional Development. Additionally, the Council has other fees for obtaining the CDA renewal. These fees are not included in the class enrollment. Click Here for an overview of the steps to obtain a CDA renewal.
