The CDA Prep Guide by Debra Pierce

The CDA Prep Guide

The Continuing Education process is simple:
  1. You watch a video (VHS or DVD), and we recommend that you take notes./li>
  2. Study the materials carefully.
  3. Take the test and fax or mail it back to us for grading.  In order to be graded, your test must be purchased.  We do not grade tests that have not been purchased.
  4. If you pass the test, you earn the the number of CEU credits or clock hours of the course that  you passed.

What makes our courses so unique?

  • Each course is video-based. Most courses are now available in VHS and DVD formats.
  • The videos can be used over and over again to train new staff members.
  • The videos can be used to develop parent-professional resource libraries and support parent partnerships in your program.
