Early Childhood Credential from CCEI is now a CDA Equivalency in Utah!
The Utah state Bureau of Child Development, Child Care Licensing
Administration, has evaluated and determined the CCEI Online Early Childhood Credential (ECC) to be an accepted certification equivalent to the Child Development Associate (CDA) issued by the Council for Early Childhood
Professional Recognition. The CCEI credential awards 18 IACET CEUs and
has been recommended for 12 hours of semester credit in early childhood
education by the National College Credit Recommendation Service
(National CCRS), which has more than 1,500 schools willing to consider
credit. The Credential is also recognized by the National Association
for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) to meet a part of the
Alternative Pathways for directors to meet educational qualifications of
the Designated Program Administrator.
