But don't just take it from us

My CDA experience was amazing. I loved how supported I felt working with Emma as my mentor and how organized the program was. We were challenged to complete the online courses and CDA portfolio simultaneously and I felt that this made the entire program that much more obtainable. Emma walked me through the CDA program every step of the way and I could not be more thankful.
Christy Knight
CDA was a wonderful learning and professional development opportunity for me. I really loved the self-paced part of the program and how I could take classes online in my own timeframe. I felt extremely supported by Emma who guided and organized the program to make it very manageable to take on while working full-time.
