Child Development Permit Matrix
We strongly encourage students to apply for their Child Development Permit to become eligible for positions in state or federally- funded programs. Because Cerritos College belongs to the Child Development Training Consortium, your application fee for the Assistant, Associate and Teacher level is paid for and CDTC will reimburse you $49.00 towards the cost of fingerprinting. The CDTC also pays for upgrades from one of the three lower levels to the Master Teacher, Site Supervisor and Program Director level, and renewals for the lower three levels. To apply for your Permit through the CDTC, you can stop by any of the full-time faculty members' office hours.
All the forms are available on the Child Development Training Consortium's website at www.childdevelopment.org. Click on Early Childhood Education Student Career and Education Program; then on Child Development Permits. All the applications are listed on the right hand margin and you can choose the appropriate one.
