When is the next application available? 

The next application  is currently closed. The next session will begin January 5, 2022. The application will be available at 9:00 on December 6th, 2021.

Where can I access the application?

The application will be available on the CDE ASD webpage. You can also be notified when the application becomes available by signing up for the ASD ListServ

Am I required to secure supervision?

No. Many individuals take the course, simply for the knowledge. If you choose to go on for the certification, you will need to find a BCBA to provide supervision.

Do you keep a waiting list?

No, we do NOT keep a waitlist.

Can I get credit for taking the course?

CDE does not offer pre-approved CEUs. You do receive a certificate of completion and can use that to apply for CEUs. Currently, Pittsburgh State University offers the opportunity to apply for 3 credit hours of college credit following completion of the course. This is typically used to move on district pay scales. Most universities do not accept this as an elective. Follow up with your own university/school district to see if this option would apply to you.

Do we ever meet in person?

No. All coursework is completed online. Once a month, the instructor will hold virtual review sessions with the application ‘Zoom’.
