    Hello everyone,

    Quick question.. I just received my CDA coursework from Care Courses and it says that after I complete the 120 hours of coursework and contact the council, during the 'verification visit' I will be given an oral interview and 60 question multiple choice test. I also thought I would be observed teaching, but it doesn't say that on this sheet. Just wondering if someone has recently completed their CDA, as maybe it has changed. A woman I worked with 2 years ago said she still needed to be observed, so maybe now it's a multiple choice instead? Any feedback welcomed, thanks a lot!

    I got my CDA in 2006. The verification visit is where they observe you teaching. After they observe you is when you do the interview, etc. at least thats how it was for me

    Does it take very long to get an appointment? I was wondering what the usual amount of time is once you make the appointment to being observed, tested, interviewed and then get issued your CDA.

    Anyway thanks for all of the great posts, I really appreciate the info!
