  • Cda?

    So i have to get my cda (even thought I have a ton of college), So does anyone know where i can get the cda competency book online? Im willing to pay I just dont want to have to wait for it to ship (and live in a tiny town with NO bookstore!!)

    I got the CDA but found it too expensive and time-consuming to keep (they make their money by making you re-do it all over and over again).

    To me, it is cheaper and easier on family life to go get the TCC or degree.

      Same for me; My CDA expired in 2020 and I didn't renew. I do have my Associates degree and get tired of renewing all of the SAME stuff required for CDA that is the same I have to renew every year for licensing. Yes; much cheaper!

      Do you have the option of a TCC? It only took me 3 months and was well worth it. Oddly enough there was much less paperwork, observation hours and it transfers.

        I just looked at your state's EC Comparison charts. Your state does not require special ed or title 1 to be licensed at all?? That's crazy to me. At least you are still under the dept of human resources and not the board of ed (if home-based), but wow, the hypocrisy of the regs.

          Are you taking the role of teacher or director?
          You are in WI right? If I am reading the requirements correctly you should be qualified now with the credits you have taken, even without the actual completion of the degree.
          I might be reading them wrong as it seems each state's rules try to be as complicated as possible in wording but not in reality.

            Same. My memory was a steel trap, now I lose my breakfast plate. 50 sux.

            My neighbor swears it levels after the hormones wrap up their tour of duty. We shall see.
