The Early Childhood Education Technical Certificate prepares students for employment in the field of child care and early education. Students are required to complete 24 semester hours in early childhood education. All courses in the technical certificate count toward an A.A.S. or A.S. degree should students choose to continue their education. Students who have completed the TECTA courses for CDA preparation will have only need to complete 12 additional hours to receive the certificate.
Students who received their CDA (Child Development Associate) Credential through TECTA (Tennessee Early Childhood Training Alliance) are given an opportunity to strengthen their skills and knowledge in curriculum development for young children and receive necessary credits for CDA renewal.
For more information, see the Early Childhood Education program site.
