We strongly encourage students to apply for their Child Development Permit. You have two different options when applying; you can access all the paperwork on-line, or you can see one of the full time instructors to pick up the paperwork.
If you want to download the application yourself, first visit the California Department of Education for state forms at http://www.ctc.ca.gov/credentials/how-to-apply.html . For the State of California you need to fill out the application form 41-4 on-line and then print; and print the Request for LiveScan fingerprinting form. Then visit the Child Development Training Consortium at Child Development Training Consortium to print the required Consortium forms. Also, you need to have official transcripts showing the courses completed with a passing grade of C or better. If you access the paperwork on-line, you still must make an appointment with an instructor to review your paperwork and sign off before you mail it in. Because Cerritos College belongs to the Child Development Training Consortium, your application fee is paid for and CDTC will reimburse you $51.00 towards the cost of fingerprinting.
Starting immediately, students must fill out the Confidential Profile when submitting a Permit Application!
