Welcome to Atlas Training...
A CDA Training Program in Child Development
Training includes portfolio development!
We look forward to working with you as we take you from start to finish until you earn your CDA.
Atlas Training is a CDA Training program in Child Development. It offers Competency-Based Education (CBE) to participants on an interactive learning platform and is an alternative to the traditional online model of watching videos and taking a multiple choice quiz to demonstrate knowledge.
Participants enrolling in Atlas Training work through one module at a time and demonstrate that they understand and can apply what they learn prior to moving on to the next module. Progress is based on demonstration of proficiency and/or mastery of the 13 functional areas of the national CDA and is measured through assessments that include discussions, assignments, reflections and multiple choice quizzes.
Though Atlas Training is a nine month program, students have flexibility within each month to complete work at their own pace. Content mastery is the focus, rather than students completing training just to earn hours to use towards the credential.
With Atlas Training, you get the following benefits:
- Qualified Instructors: A course instructor will provide ongoing feedback throughout the program and will be available to support you.
- Group Learning: Our programs are organized into cohorts. You will be able to learn from other students' learning experiences as you participate in online discussions.
- 100% Online: The program is fully online, and assignments for each module can be completed at any time during the month they are active (1 module per month).
- Meaningful Field Experiences: Throughout the program, you will have opportunities to apply your learning to numerous scenarios that you may encounter in the field!
