CDA Renewal Amnesty Program – Office of Head Start

2/29/12

The Council for Professional Recognition recently announced the CDA Renewal Amnesty Program, which may be of interest to your agency. Beginning March 1, 2012, anyone who has earned a CDA in the last ten years may apply for renewal, even if their CDA has expired. This means that all CDAs with a credential date of January, 2002 or later are eligible for Renewal Amnesty. This amnesty program will only last until December 31, 2012.

CDA Renewal Requirements:

  • 4.5 CEUs or 3 college-credit-hours of training within the last 5 years
  • A recommendation from an ECE professional who is familiar with your professional work
  • A pediatric first aid certificate
  • Membership in an ECE professional membership organization
  • A brief letter from a supervisor testifying that you have worked at least 80 hours in the past year
