What is a Professional Development Advisor?
A Professional Development Advisor (PDA) is an experienced professional who will assist you with planning and achieving your career goals. A PDA will guide you through developing a Professional Development Plan and share information about colleges and universities in your area that offer coursework in early childhood, as well as help you decide which credential or certification would be best for you.
If you are an owner or director of an early care and education program you can request an advisor to work with you and your staff. Ask us about Center Advising.
