Early Childhood Professional Credential 2.0

The Early Childhood Professional Credential has been revised to support the career development of a broader spectrum of early childhood professionals, recognize alternative pathways that lead to expertise in early childhood education, create more achievable increments between levels, align with the new Colorado Shines Quality Rating and Improvement System, and unify multiple credentialing systems.  

To apply, you must be registered in the PDIS.  In the 'My Profile' section, click on 'Colorado EC Professional Credential 2.0' and follow the steps.
