A 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. Additional information, including the CDA Renewal Procedures Guides for each setting, can be found on the CDA Council's website by clicking here.
**Your training and membership documentation will be reviewed by a Verifier. Please refer to the Renewal Procedures Guide for more information.

In July 2017, the CDA Council for Professional Recognition awarded Care Courses the new CDA Gold Standard certification in recognition of the quality of our courses, the unlimited, free support services we provide for our students, and our effective online and CourseBook training options. In 2022 we became an official partner of the Council. We are proud to work closely with the CDA Council to support early childhood professionals throughout the entire United States.
