Won­der­ing how much time you have to com­plete your CDA exam and Ver­i­fi­ca­tion Vis­it? Try­ing to find the your CDA exam and ver­i­fi­ca­tion vis­it dead­line? You have come to the right place! 

Ready to Schedule Notice

The CDA Coun­cil for Pro­fes­sion­al Recog­ni­tion gives appli­cants a spec­i­fied time-win­dow in which you must com­plete your CDA exam and Ver­i­fi­ca­tion Vis­it. Once you have applied for your Nation­al CDA and received the “Ready to Sched­ule” notice from the CDA coun­cil, you have six months to take your CDA Exam and com­plete your Ver­i­fi­ca­tion Vis­it with the pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment spe­cial­ist. The end of this six month peri­od is your CDA exam and ver­i­fi­ca­tion vis­it “dead­line.”

There are two ways to schedule your CDA Exam

You can cre­ate a Pear­son VUE web account and sched­ule online. Or you can sched­ule by phone by call­ing 1–866-507‑5627. Sched­ule the CDA Exam any­time between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm Cen­tral Stan­dard Time (CST), Mon­day through Fri­day. Give your­self ample time to sched­ule the exam. COVID-19 Social dis­tanc­ing require­ments, lim­it­ed staff, and local gov­ern­ment guid­ance have lim­it­ed the avail­abil­i­ty of many test cen­ters. Because of this some test cen­ters in the Unit­ed States have extend­ed their hours to almost 24 hours a day.

After you’ve received your “Ready to Sched­ule” notice from the CDA coun­cil, con­tact your Pro­fes­sion­al Devel­op­ment Spe­cial­ist to sched­ule a time for your Ver­i­fi­ca­tion Visit. 

If you are work­ing at a cen­ter, make sure your Direc­tor grants you per­mis­sion to sched­ule your Ver­i­fi­ca­tion Vis­it since it usu­al­ly takes four hours.
