PA KEYS TO PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT CDA ASSESSMENT FEE VOUCHER PROGRAM
The CDA ASSESSMENT FEE VOUCHER PROGRAM supplies payment for the CDA Assessment Fee that is required to complete the CDA Assessment process. The full CDA Assessment Fee of $425 is paid directly to the Council for Professional Recognition. This program does not reimburse individuals.
Please note: Effective January 1, 2018, the Council for Professional Recognition has increased the application processing for candidates submitting paper applications to $500. Candidates who utilize their online application system at www.cdacouncil.org, will continue to be charged $425. At this time, the CDA Assessment Fee voucher will continue to be valued at $425. Should you choose to utilize a paper application, you will be responsible for submitting the additional $75 fee in addition to the $425 CDA Assessment Voucher. Paper applications submitted to the Council with only the $425 CDA Assessment Fee voucher will be returned to the applicant.
The Voucher Program for the CDA Assessment Fee is a two-step process. The first step is to apply for a voucher. Applications are then reviewed and are either approved or denied. Individuals whose applications are approved receive a voucher in the mail, which they must submit to the Council for Professional Recognition in Washington, DC, along with the CDA Application. The Council is then paid directly by the PA Key.
To access the online application, please login to the PA Keys Portal. If you do not have an account in the Portal, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-284-6031 to have an account created for you. Paper applications are no longer accepted.
