TN Early Childhood Professionals!
Has your CDA expired?
Have you continued your professional development or earned a degree?
Do you want to stay connected with the CDA community of early childhood professionals?
Many professionals who earned a CDA earlier in their careers let it expire years ago and are no longer eligible for renewal, despite their continued work and training in early childhood education. Some have gone on to earn a Bachelor or Associate degree, but find value in staying connected to the CDA Community by renewing their CDA.
TECTA is committed to increasing the number of individuals who have a CDA Credential which keeps professionals in early childhood connected to the competencies that characterize the foundations of the field. TECTA will provide financial support for individuals who wish to renew their credential through the Amnesty program.
The Council‘s Renewal Amnesty Program allows anyone who has earned or renewed a CDA in the last ten years to apply for Renewal, even if their CDA has expired. This means that if your CDA has a credential date of January, 2002 or later, you are eligible for Renewal Amnesty. TECTA management will provide financial assistance for eligible candidates to renew their CDA. This will be first come first serve, with a last date to submit via TECTA targeted for May 31, 2013.
This project is funded through a contract with the Tennessee Department of Human Services and Tennessee State University, Center of Excellence for Learning Sciences.
